Asthma Preventive Services Project RFP Announced, Webinar to be Held March 4

The Center at the Sierra Health Foundation recently announced a request for proposals for the Asthma Preventive Services Project, which will support a statewide network of entities providing asthma home visiting, education, and environmental mitigation with a focus on serving Medi-Cal patients. Funding will be focused on services for individuals with poorly controlled asthma to improve self-management, as well as to decrease exposure to environmental triggers and improve asthma outcomes.

The Center is seeking applications from a variety of entities, including local health departments, community-based organizations, community-based providers, and Medi-Cal managed care organizations that will work on specific culturally and linguistically appropriate asthma home visiting programs. Grants will be awarded in amounts up to $500,000 over three years.

The Center at the Sierra Health Foundation will host one webinar to review the request for proposals and allow attendees to answer questions. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, March 4 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am; registration is available here. Participation on the webinar is not required but is strongly encouraged.

Final RFPs are due to The Center at the Sierra Health Foundation by Tuesday, April 28 at 1:00 pm. Additional information is available here.
