Maternal and Child Health Training Program
As part of the Division, the Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children grant program promotes the development and advancement of healthy communities through partnerships with organizations that work to change conditions in the community and environment to improve health. These efforts may include a focus on housing, education, the labor workforce, socioeconomic conditions, neighborhood safety, transportation, food quality and availability, and physical fitness and recreational activities available for children and families. In addition, grantees in community practice often support the development of family-centered, culturally competent pediatric clinicians and public health professionals. Currently, Healthy Tomorrows funds 43 grants across 24 states.
