Good afternoon,

​This notice is to announce the release of the California Home Visiting Program (CHVP) State General Fund (SGF) Innovation 2.0 Request for Supplemental Information (RS​​I). The California Department of Public Health (CDPH)/California Home Visiting Program (CHVP) is offering a small number of awards to local health jurisdictions (LHJs) to implement innovative early childhood home visiting programs or projects with a focus on meeting the need of a locally identified population facing the greatest inequities in health and social outcomes. Projects must support a model that uses home visiting as a primary strategy for providing services to pregnant people and/or children from birth to kindergarten entry. 

Submissions for the Innovation 2.0 RSI will be 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. CHVP will review and prioritize funding for project proposals from LHJs that do not receive any other CHVP funding to support access to these important services across the state. The four counties that do not receive CHVP funding are Alpine, Imperial, Placer, and Trinity. If these counties submit a project proposal that aligns with the parameters of this RSI, they will be awarded funding. All other project proposals will be reviewed and scored. The highest scoring (out of 100 available points) submissions will receive funds up to the total available funding for this RSI. 

Attached are the CHVP INNV 2.0 RSI and CHVP SGF INNV RSI 2.0 Submission Template. Please review each document carefully for further information related to priorities for funding, eligibility criteria, and submission instructions. 

CDPH/CHVP will host a voluntary technical assistance webinar related to the RSI on October 13, 2023, at 1 pm. Questions will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. on October 20, 2023. Send your questions to and write “CHVP Innovation RSI Question" in the subject line. Questions will be answered via CHVP Memo sent by e-mail no later than October 27, 2023.
