What is the program?

This announcement solicits applications for the National Center for Family/Professional Partnerships (NCFPP).  The purposes of this award are to (1) provide assistance and support to the HRSA-funded F2F HICs and other MCHB investments on the topics of family engagement and cultural and linguistic competence; and (2) implement family and youth leadership development and training activities, specifically for racially and ethnically diverse minority families of CYSHCN and YSHCN.

Program Goals

Program Objectives

Specific NCFPP objectives are as follows:

·         Set a baseline and increase by 20% annually, the number of family and YSHCN leaders (as defined by MCHB)[2] who report meaningful participation[3] on community/state/national level teams focused on CYSHCN systems.

·         Set a baseline and increase by 10% annually, the number of racially and ethnically diverse family and YSHCN leaders who are trained and serve on community/state/national level teams focusing on CYSHCN systems.

·         Set a baseline and increase by 20% annually, the number of family and YSHCN leaders that have been trained who report increased knowledge, skills, abilities and self-efficacy to serve as leaders on systems-level teams.

·         By 2019, 90% of F2F HIC respondents will report favorable evaluations in meeting their project goals, as a result of the training and assistance received from the NCFPP.

·         By 2019, 75% of maternal and child health (MCH) program respondents receiving assistance from the NCFPP, will report increased ability to partner with and monitor partnerships with families and YSHCN in systems-level initiatives.
