Discuss and consider authorizing the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District to enter into a contract with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for the Texas Nurse-Family Partnership Program providing for a nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program for the period of May 23, 2012 to August 31, 2013 with funding in the amount of $319,806 for FY 2012 and $605,854 for FY 2013; and create and unfreeze 7 positions to include 1 Public Health Manager (Grade H56, salary range $40,093 to $69,613), 5 Public Health Nurses (Grade H54, salary range $33,286 to $57,844) and 1 Management Assistant (Grade H17, salary range $29,011 to $46,340); authorize Annette Rodriguez, M.P.H., Director of the Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District, to sign on behalf of Nueces County.
The contract will introduce 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 health pregnancy, improve their child’s health and development, and become more economically self-sufficient.
The Corpus Christi-Nueces County Public Health District is in receipt of Contract No. HHSC 529-12-0066 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. Create and unfreeze seven (7) positions, 90% grant funded and 10% local in-kind match.
