Objectives and Goals
The Objectives of this grant are to facilitate case management services to high risk infants and children ages 0-2 years old statewide with the goal of reducing infant mortality and morbidity rates at both the state and local level. Assistance in obtaining health and human services which promote healthy growth and development will be provided to low income high risk families as mandated in the Illinois Family Case Management Act through two programs: High Risk Infant Follow-Up and HealthWorks of Illinois. Because DHS staff and facilities are not used to provide these direct client services, they are procured through grant agreements with the non-profit organizations, such as Local Public Health Departments, FQHCs and CBOs.
