Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP)

Funding Agency:
Health Resources and Services Administration

This notice solicits applications for the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP). The purpose of this program is to support community-based services aimed at improving the health status of children, adolescents, and families in rural and other underserved communities by increasing their access to health services. This program supports the Health Resources and Services’ (HRSA's) goals to improve access to quality health care and services, build healthy communities, and improve health equity. Community-based programs and evidence-based models of care that build on existing community resources will be implemented and evaluated to demonstrate program impact. This program supports collaboration between local pediatric providers and community leaders in an effort to provide quality health care and preventive health services to children, adolescents, and families in rural and other underserved communities. HTPCP funding supports projects that provide clinical or public health services, and does not support research projects. HTPCP applications MUST represent either a new initiative (i.e., project that was not previously in existence) within the community or an innovative new component that builds upon an existing community-based program or initiative.

Deadline: Oct. 1, 2018

Eligibility Requirements

Any domestic public or private entity, including an Indian tribe or tribal organization (as defined at 25 U.S.C. 450b), is eligible to apply for federal funding under this announcement. See 42 CFR § 51a.3(a). Domestic community-based organizations, including faith-based organizations, are eligible to apply. An eligible applicant must have both direct fiduciary and administrative responsibility over the project.

NOTE: Multiple applications from an organization with the same DUNS number are allowable if the applications propose separate and distinct HTPCP projects that will not overlap. 



Amount Description

HRSA expects approximately $400,000 to be available annually to fund up to eight recipients. You may apply for a ceiling amount of up to $50,000 total cost (includes both direct and indirect, facilities and administrative costs) per year. The FY 2019 President’s Budget does not request funding for this program. The actual amount available will not be determined until enactment of the final FY 2019 federal appropriation. This program notice is subject to the appropriation of funds, and is a contingency action taken to ensure that, should funds become available for this purpose, HRSA can process applications and award funds in a timely manner. The period of performance is March 1, 2019 through February 29, 2024 (5 years). Funding beyond the first year is dependent on the availability of appropriated funds for HTPCP in subsequent fiscal years, satisfactory recipient performance, and a decision that continued funding is in the best interest of the Federal Government.
