Technical assistance for organizations, cities, counties, and states

Request for Proposals: Support for Asthma Programs with Comprehensive Environmental Health Services

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has received $200,000 in funding for the first year of a three-year grant award from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the result of a highly competitive open grant competition focused on reducing public exposure to indoor pollutants.

This funding will allow GHHI to provide technical assistance to organizations in two different capacities:

1.      Business Development Support: GHHI will provide technical assistance to organizations and/or partnerships seeking to develop and implement asthma home visiting programs that provide comprehensive environmental health services.

2.      Reimbursement Support: GHHI will provide technical assistance to organizations and/or partnerships interested in seeking reimbursement from health care (e.g. Medicaid) for operational asthma home visiting programs that provide comprehensive environmental health services. Applicants for this opportunity should have an operational asthma home visiting program and have a health care entity partner interested in exploring reimbursement that is willing to provide a letter of support.

GHHI will also be convening and managing the Asthma Outcomes Metrics Working Group to development an Environmental Management and Health Outcomes Metrics (EMHOME) system.

Please see the press release here.

Technical assistance for organizations, cities, counties, and states

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has a well-earned reputation for delivering quality services to at-risk communities, developing innovative models for healthy homes policies and programs, and providing effective technical assistance nationally to state, county, and city governments. GHHI bridges the gaps that often prevent the coordination and cooperation between health, housing and environmental agencies at the city and state levels, nonprofit service providers and private investors.

GHHI does this in three distinct ways: 1) Delivering expert subject matter trainings; 2) facilitating meetings between city, county and statewide stakeholders; and 3) working hand-in-hand and on-the-ground within cities to implement the proven GHHI Model for integrated home interventions.
