The NYS Office of Mental Health (OMH) announces the additional availability of funds to support the implementation of HealthySteps. Our goal is to promote an intentional focus on prevention activities by identifying and implementing evidence-based and data-informed preventive practices. HealthySteps is an evidence-based program that serves both young children ages birth to three and their families in a pediatric health care setting, which is non-stigmatizing and offers universal access.
OMH is offering this opportunity as a REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS (RFA). This procurement process is streamlined to ensure both efficiency and efficacy for the applicant. Please access this opportunity in Grants Gateway to understand what this process entails.
