Discuss and consider Amendment Four to a contract between the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District (CCNCPHD) and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for the Texas Nurse-Family Partnership Program in the amount of $564,682 for the period of October 1, 2015 to August 31, 2016; authorize the Director of the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District to sign on behalf of Nueces County.
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.
The CCNCPHD is in receipt of Amendment No. 4 HHSC 529-12-0066-00005D 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. Under Amendment Four, HHSC will reduce the previous FY15 budget by $70,000.00 to $520,335; and for the term beginning October 1, 2015 and ending August 31, 2016, provide an additional $564,682.00 with a local match of $56,468.20 through in-kind from salaries and benefits ($33,291.08), and office space and computer network fees ($23,117.12 for total funding of $621,150.20.
