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 should lead to: Increased capacity to serve individuals with poorly controlled asthma, increase advocacy related to prevention and treatment of asthma and to build a network of partners to engage in asthma preventive services.
