National Initiative for Asthma Reimbursement

EPA Grant

The Green & Healthy Homes Initiative (GHHI) has received funding for the second 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.
  1. 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.

Please see the announcement here.
