Request for Proposals for Round 2 ACEs Aware Grants
The following is a message from the Department of Health Care Services
Working to further expand the reach and impact of the ACEs Aware initiative, the DHCS, in partnership with the Office of the California Surgeon General (CA-OSG), this week released a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a second round of ACEs Aware grants. The ACEs Aware initiative, led by DHCS and CA-OSG, is a first-in-the-nation statewide effort to train providers on how to screen patients for ACEs and treat the impacts of toxic stress. The initiative has also been an integral part of the Medi-Cal program’s response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, helping providers identify, treat, and prevent the secondary health effects associated with stress caused by the pandemic.
