Purpose:

The Asthma Preventive Services Project is funded by the California Department of Health Care Services as one-time funding to support local health departments, medical providers and community-based organizations to offer asthma home visiting services, including education and environmental trigger mitigation. Awarded funds will support environmental mitigation, education and disease-management services to individuals with poorly controlled asthma.

Activities supported by this funding opportunity must be related to environmental mitigation, education and disease-management services for individuals with poorly controlled asthma, and must be focused on the following three outcomes: 1. Improvement in asthma self-management 2. Decreased exposure to environmental triggers 3. Improved asthma outcomes.

In addition, activities should lead to: Increased capacity to serve individuals with poorly controlled asthma, increased advocacy related to prevention and treatment of asthma, and development of a network of partners to engage in asthma preventive services. This program is focused on Medi-Cal patients, particularly those children and adults with poorly controlled asthma, as well as undocumented adults who are not otherwise qualified for Medi-Cal and have poorly controlled asthma.
