This opportunity will provide funding for early childhood wraparound services to support relevant skill building among adults who work with infants, young children, expectant parents, new parents, and caregivers. Funding will focus on home visiting services and child-specific clinical consultation services for adults that work closely with infants and children with emotional and behavioral health needs on an individual basis.

Program goals:

  • Increase access, sustainability, and coordination of home visiting services and consultation services that are culturally and linguistically representative of and responsive to the needs of communities they serve
  • Improve coordination of services for pregnant and parenting people, their partners, mothers, fathers, infants, and families
  • Strengthen child and parent/caregiver relationships, improve family dynamics, and increase parent/caregiver involvement through positive parenting practices
  • Improve caregiver well being, as well as newborn and child health and development
  • Strengthen the home-visiting workforce through building a diverse workforce and identifying challenges that impact care for populations of focus
  • Reduce health disparities through improving equitable access to services for parents, caregivers, and children in California that are culturally and linguistically responsive to the needs of the priority populations

Populations of focus include:

  • African Americans
  • Asians
  • Pacific islanders
  • Latinos
  • Native Americans
  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Families engaged with the foster care or justice system
  • Tribal nations
  • Families experiencing homelessness
  • Rural regions
  • Refugees
  • Socio-economically disadvantaged populations

Eligible applicants include:

  • Statewide and local agencies
  • Community-based organizations that provide services to children, youth, and/or families
  • Provider clinics
  • City and county governments

Eligible home visiting program models include Family Spirit, Healthy Families America, Nurse Family Partnership, and Parents as Teachers. Other home-visiting programs relating to early childhood wraparound services may be considered.
