Questions and Responses Posted for NFP-ITN

Questions submitted by prospective respondents to the Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) Invitation to Negotiate (ITN) and responses are now posted

The Florida Association of Healthy Start Coalitions (FAHSC) earlier this month released an ITN for state funding to establish or expand NFP programs in low-income communities. The funding was included in the 2016 state budget and is administered by FAHSC under a contract with the Florida Department of Health.

Per legislative proviso, eligible applicants include local Healthy Start Coalitions and /or Federally Qualified Community Health Centers. Proposals will be reviewed and selected by a panel established by the NFP National Service Office.

NFP is designed for first-time, low-income mothers and their children. It includes one-on-one home visits by a trained nurse to participating clients who enroll voluntarily. The visits begin early in the woman’s pregnancy and conclude when the woman’s child turns 2 years old.

Responses are due September 30, 2016.
