Asthma Mitigation Project

Background

The California Department of Health Care Services awarded the Asthma Mitigation Project contract to The Center at Sierra Health Foundation. This statewide program will provide $12 million in funding for grantees, plus additional support through technical assistance and evaluation services, for local health departments, medical providers and community-based organizations to offer culturally and linguistically appropriate asthma home visiting services to individuals with poorly controlled asthma, with a focus on low-income communities and communities of color that have disproportionate rates of asthma. In addition, activities lead to increased capacity to serve individuals with poorly controlled asthma, increased advocacy related to prevention and treatment of asthma, and a network of partners to engage in asthma preventive services.
