The California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Maternal, Child and Adolescent Health (MCAH) Division, California Home Visiting Program (CHVP) released the Innovation 2.0 Request for Supplemental Information (RSI) to fund a small number of awards to local health jurisdictions (LHJs) to implement innovative early childhood home visiting programs with a focus on meeting the need of a locally identified population facing the greatest inequities in health and social outcomes. On an annual fiscal year basis, up to $3,203,309 in State General Funds (SGF) Innovation (INNV) will be awarded with a maximum award of $800,000 per year.

Submissions were accepted for proposed projects in the categories of evidence-informed home visiting programs and evidence-based home visiting models not currently administered by CDPH/CHVP. ​​

One of CDPH/CHVP’s priorities for SGF INNV 2.0 was supporting the goal of providing CHVP-fu​​nded home visiting services in all 61 CA LHJ. To support home visiting in geographically underserved areas of the state that do not have any current CHVP programming, CDPH/CHVP reviewed and prioritized funding for project proposals from the four LHJs that do not receive any other CHVP funding; Alpine, Imperial, Placer, and Trinity Counities. Submissions received from any of these four counites were reviewed for alignment with parameters of this RSI and were funded accordingly.

The remainder of SGF INNV 2​​​.0 funding was awarded based on the highest scoring submissions from any of the other 57 LHJs.

Following issuan​ce of this Notice of Intent to Award, CDPH/CHVP will release an agreement funding application (AFA) package for SFY 2023-24 to each LHJ awarded SGF INNV 2.0 funding and schedule a call to discuss details, including intent to accept or decline the award, within ​​7 days of this announcement.

The project period for SGF INNV 2.0 is July 1, 2023 through ​June 30, 2028. The intended award amounts are listed below are for SFY 2023-24. Future year award amounts are subject to change and will be negotiated annually.
