Family Professional Partnerships/CSHCN-Family Opportunity Act: The purpose of this initiative for "Family To Family Health Care Information and Education Centers for Families of Children with Special Health Care Needs" (F2F HICs) is to address the President's New Freedom Initiative to reduce barriers to community living for people with disabilities and to address families' lack of access to the services, advocacy and assistance they need as mandated in The Family Opportunity Act of 2005. This initiative ultimately will assist families so that: "Families of children with special health care needs will partner in decision-making at all levels". Grants will fund state-wide, family-run centers providing information, education, technical assistance and peer support to families of CYSHCN. They will be responsible for developing partnerships with those organizations serving these children and their families and monitor the progress of programs with responsibility for payment and direct services of this population through a statewide data collection system.
