Library of Congress Summary

The summary below was written by the Congressional Research Service, which is a nonpartisan division of the Library of Congress.

Supporting Child Maltreatment Prevention Efforts in Community Health Centers Act of 2009 - Directs the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) to award five-year competitive grants to eligible federally qualified health centers (FQHCs) to fund at least 10 demonstration projects to promote:
(1) universal access to family centered, evidence-based interventions in the FQHCs that prevent child maltreatment by addressing parenting practices and skills; and
(2) behavioral health and family well-being for families from diverse socioeconomic, cultural, racial, and ethnic backgrounds.
Allows FQHCs to use grant funds to:
(1) conduct needs assessments;
(2) use available technologies to collect, organize, and provide access to patient health and mental health information and to provide referrals, train staff, monitor service delivery and outcomes, and create networking opportunities;
(3) adapt and implement evidence-based parenting skills training programs for caregivers;
(4) screen caregivers (by trained professionals) for child maltreatment risk factors and provide access to mental health services to caregivers screened positive for child maltreatment risk factors;
(5) develop public education campaigns; and
(6) evaluate patient satisfaction, project cost effectiveness, and effectiveness of evidence-based parenting programs in improving parenting practices and reducing child abuse and neglect.
Directs the Secretary to contract with institutions of higher education, nonprofit organizations, and other entities to provide technical assistance and project coordination for grant recipients, training for health care professionals at FQHCs, and cross-site evaluation of demonstration projects.

House Democratic Caucus Summary

The House Democratic Caucus does not provide summaries of bills.

So, yes, we display the House Republican Conference’s summaries when available even if we do not have a Democratic summary available. That’s because we feel it is better to give you as much information as possible, even if we cannot provide every viewpoint.

We’ll be looking for a source of summaries from the other side in the meanwhile.
