The National Center for Family/Professional Partnerships for CYSHCN (NCFPP)
In the spring of 2016, Family Voices was awarded a new three-year cooperative agreement from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau as the National Center for Family Professional Partnerships (NCFPP). The new project period will be June 2016 through May 2019. Goals include:
- Training and mentoring family/youth (especially those from diverse backgrounds) to serve on systems teams (in partnership with The Statewide Parent Advocacy Network (SPAN),
- Assisting MCH programs to engage family/youth leaders, and
- Helping F2F increase their capacity to assist families of CYSHCN and the professionals who serve them.
In late 2016, NCFPP was awarded supplemental funds from the Maternal and Child Health Bureau to support families in the territories. Click here to read the full announcement.
