Request for proposals: Support for asthma programs with comprehensice environmental health services
Technical Assistance for Organizations, Cities, Counties, and States
The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has received $200,000 in funding for the first year of a three-year grant from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the result of a highly competitive open grant competition focused on reducing public exposure to indoor pollutants.
The collaborative project will allow for three simultaneous technical assistance and support activities - business development, reimbursement, and an Asthma Outcome Metrics Working Group - and will allow GHHI to provide support to:
- Develop and implement asthma home visiting programs that provide comprehensive environmental health services;
- Increase Medicaid funding for these interventions; and
- Convene and manage the Asthma Outcome Metrics Working Group to develop Environmental Management & Health Outcomes Metrics (EMHOME) system.
