This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Supporting Healthy Start Performance Project (SHSPP). The purpose of the SHSPP is to provide training and technical assistance (TA) to support grant recipients in improving their service delivery, meeting outcome measures, and building program ability to work with community partners to improve health and social service systems to reduce maternal and infant health disparities. These grant recipients include those funded under the following programs: Healthy Start (HS), Healthy Start Enhanced (HSE), and Catalyst for Infant Health Equity (Catalyst). To carry out these activities, the SHSPP recipient will serve as the Healthy Start Technical Assistance and Support Center (TASC). As the TASC, the SHSPP will aid in strengthening the implementation of HS grant recipient activities by providing ongoing training and TA to grant recipients. The HS, HSE, and Catalyst programs have an increased emphasis on addressing social determinants of health (SDOH) to improve disparities in maternal and infant health outcomes. Training and TA strategies provided by the SHSPP are expected to acknowledge and respond to SDOH affecting HS grant recipients across the country.
