This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Early Childhood Developmental Health Systems (ECDHS): Evidence to Impact program. The purpose of this program is to advance statewide systems of comprehensive early childhood developmental promotion, screenings, and interventions that improve outcomes and reduce disparities in early developmental health and family well-being for communities with high levels of childhood poverty. These statewide systems will be referred to as early childhood development (ECD) systems.
This NOFO also describes an opportunity for additional funding, pending availability of funds, to advance the specific strategy of improving delivery of high-quality ECD promotion and support services in pediatric settings. If funded, the recipient will expand activities under the core ECDHS: Evidence to Impact program to provide national leadership, TA, coordination, and evaluation in support of the anticipated Transforming Pediatrics for Early Childhood (TPEC) program (see Appendix D and HRSA-22-141, when published, for details). Through this additional TPEC TA Activity, the Center will: 1. Provide TA and build the capacity of approximately 20 state-level resource hubs that will sustainably integrate ECD experts into pediatric practices that serve a population with a high percentage of Medicaid and Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) patients. 2. Accelerate and sustain the spread and impact of ECD integration in pediatric practices through evidence-building, coordination, and field leadership.
