Fw: Analysis of Health Reform Act Shows Millions in Funding for Nonhealth-Related Organizations

From: "Greg Erickson, Community Health Funding Report." <offers@cdpublications.com>
While many believe that the billions in the recently passed Healthcare Reform Act are just for healthcare, one of the best kept secrets in Washington is that the legislation channels millions in funding to other areas of vital interest to other nonprofits, tribes and local governments. This includes, but is not limited to, funding for social services, senior programs, services for low-income families, funding for disabilities, and much more! The analysis, by staff with online grant news services Community Health Funding Report and Federal and Foundation Assistance Monitor, uncovered many opportunities in the 2500- page legislation that nonprofits that are not health related can pursue.

Here's an example of just one:

Reform Package Expands $50M Home Visitation Program -- The new healthcare reform laws include significant expansion of the $50 million Maternal, Infant & Early Childhood Home Visitation Grant Program which provides grants to states to improve in-home services for children in at-risk communities.

Rules for distributing these Patient Protection & Affordable Care Act  funds are being put together by the HHS  and Education departments. Expect an interim guidance to be issued soon.

This is good news, but the key question is - -how can organizations tap this and other  infusions of federal funds? How can they get the edge on other grantseekers – and stay on top of deadlines, program changes and announcements? Plus, how can they get inside information that can increase one's chances for tapping new funding—especially when the legislation is so massive and complex?

For more details on the many nonhealth related funding opportunities in the legislation that nonprofits and local governments can tap, a special teleconference on “Finding and Winning Hidden Funding Opportunities in the New Health Reform Act” is being held Thursday, May 20, from 2 p.m.-3:30 p.m. Eastern Time.
