This Notice of Funding Availability (“NOFA”) is for the Community Health Workers Maternal & Child Health/Behavioral Health Pilot Project.

Community Health Workers (“CHWs”) are frontline public health workers who are trusted members of and/or have an unusually close understanding of the communities served. This trusting relationship enables the CHW to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery. A CHW also builds individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy.
