Healthy-TomorrowsThe Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children Program (HTPCP) is a cooperative agreement between the federal Maternal and Child Health Bureau (MCHB) and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Federal grants of $50,000 per year for up to five years are awarded through the program to support community-based child health projects that improve the health status of mothers, infants, children, and adolescents by increasing their access to health services.

Healthy Tomorrows projects must represent a new initiative within the community or an innovative component that builds upon existing community resources. Projects usually target low-income populations and address four key areas:

  • Access to health care,
  • Community-based health care,
  • Preventive health care, and
  • Service coordination.

Healthy Tomorrows Projects must include:

  • Direct health services
  • Pediatrician involvement
  • A 2:1 non-federal match requirement in Years 2-5 (may include in-kind funds)
  • An evaluation component
  • An advisory board comprised of local community members, families, and program participants.
