NICHQ to Participate in Two CHIPRA Demonstration Grant Programs

March 2010

HHS Secretary Sebelius announced on February 22nd the award of ten demonstration grants being provided to States to improve quality of care for children. NICHQ is pleased to announce that it will be participating in two of these awards, one with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the other a joint award to Florida and Illinois. In both programs NICHQ will support the establishment and spread of primary care medical homes, although the precise scope of NICHQ's work will be refined through a project planning period. 

Authorized as a component of the Children's Health Insurance Program Reauthorization Act of 2009 (CHIPRA), these grants will enable states to collect data and report on core measures of quality, test new electronic health records for children, and apply innovative models of care for children.
