Family Voices Indiana has been awarded a grant to increase our services to the families of Indiana by establishing a Family-to-Family Health Information Center (F2F HIC). The grant is administered by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Maternal and Child Health Bureau, Division of Services for Children with Special Health Needs. This grant program was established by the Family Opportunity Act of 2005, and amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. F2F HICs are family-led organizations that help families of Children/Youth with Special Health Care Needs (CYSHCN) and the professionals who serve them. To learn more about the Indiana F2F HIC, please visit our Support pages.
