Since June 2020, ACEs Aware has awarded 210 grants totaling $64.5 million to organizations statewide to augment the state of California’s work on the ACEs Aware initiative.
To ensure clinicians and practices are equipped with evidence-based training, tools, and resources to effectively incorporate ACE screening into patient care, we have released two rounds of Request For Proposals for ACEs Aware grants in five categories.
The first round of grants provided funding to organizations to design and implement trainings and provider engagement events; develop a robust set of communication activities; and support planning efforts for the development of networks of care.
The second round of grants provide funding to community-based organizations to strengthen and develop a formalized network of care in their communities. These grants support the alignment of existing community networks of care with the best practices detailed in the Office of the California Surgeon General Trauma-Informed Network of Care Roadmap.
The third round of grants were awarded to teams that will be led by clinics and will include community-based organizations (CBOs) and Medi-Cal managed care plans. Teams will identify gaps in their communities in care and services and, through a statewide learning collaborative, leverage existing and new sources of state funding to build sustainable capacity to fill these gaps.
