RECOMMENDATION
Discuss and consider Amendment Three to a contract between the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for the Texas Nurse-Family Partnership Program in the amount of $590,335 for the period of September 30, 2014 to September 29, 2015; authorize the Director of the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District to sign on behalf of Nueces County.
BACKGROUND
The contract introduces vulnerable first-time parents to caring maternal and child health nurses through a home visitation program that starts during 28 weeks of pregnancy. This nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program partners low-income, first-time moms with maternal and child health nurses. Resulting in a trusted relationship that gives these moms the support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, improve their child’s health and development, and become more economically self-sufficient.
DISCUSSION
The Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District is in receipt of Amendment Three No. HHSC 529-12-0066-00005C with HHSC to provide funding for a nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program to improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, reduce child abuse and neglect, reduce domestic violence among participants and improve family economic self-sufficiency and stability.
