    End Authority

    Justification: Supplemental funding to SBHA and Futures is necessary to ensure timely implementation of expanded T/TA that builds upon current T/TA activities to strengthen health center capacity to identify, prevent, and address intimate partner violence (IPV) and its effects. SBHA's expanded T/TA will result in new and strengthened health center partnerships to protect and support children, increased health center capacity to address social determinants of health, and expanded health center strategies to prevent violence. Futures' expanded T/TA will expand health center use of electronic health records to support IPV and human trafficking interventions, increase collection of health center IPV and human trafficking data, and strengthen the use of health information technology to connect health center patients to referral services and support. The award recipients have the demonstrated subject matter expertise and experience required to swiftly address these time-sensitive needs.
