November 2003Vol. 4, No. 9Healthy Families America Website Offers New Funding Resources
A newly redesigned Healthy Families America (HFA) website provides a useful tool for home visiting programs researching potential funding streams. The site's "Network Resources" section provides information about Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, Medicaid, Early Head Start, Title IV-B, the Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act, and more.
For each funding stream, users can find:
- Mentors. HFA members who can provide advice.
- Guiding Questions. Issues to consider when exploring that funding stream.
- Additional Resources. Follow-up resources for researching options, planning next steps, and making contacts with regional and State experts.
Launched in 1992 by Prevent Child Abuse America, HFA works to promote positive parenting, encourage child health and development, and prevent child abuse and neglect. In addition to the funding information, the website also offers updated information for State and regional contacts, research, publications, and more.
