The Center at Sierra Health Foundation was awarded the California Department of Health Care Services Asthma Mitigation Project contract. 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.
Grants of up to $500,000 per project will fund local health departments, medical providers and community-based organizations providing asthma home visiting, education and environmental mitigation services to individuals with poorly controlled asthma throughout the state, with a focus on the following three outcomes:
In addition, activities will 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.
