Contracts for services to Iowa nonprofit organizations and governmental entities to provide services for children under the age of five. Funding is intended to support healthy cognitive, emotional, and social development. The purpose of this initiative is to support and enhance models of service delivery that promote high-quality well-child care in primary care clinics, supporting healthy mental development for all children ages birth to five years.

The service delivery areas for 1st Five were established by the newly developed Collaborative Service Areas (CSAs). At this time, 1st Five will continue to operate within the current 88 counties. The CSAs for 1st Five may include a mix of 1st Five and non-1st Five counties. The Department's goal is to have local 1st Five services in each county that has previously been served by 1st Five. This includes all counties except the following: Cherokee, Clinton, Ida, Iowa, Jackson, Johnson, Lyon, Plymouth, Scott, Sioux and Woodbury.

The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) # 58823006 is to solicit applications that will enable the Iowa Department of Public Health (referred to as Department) to select the most qualified Applicant to provide 1st Five Healthy Mental Development Initiative (1st Five) services. 

The basics of 1st Five include:

  • Targeting the population of children birth to age five (up to a child’s fifth birthday)
  • Increasing use of surveillance and standardized developmental screening in primary care
  • Providing a one-step referral resource for primary care providers
  • Connecting referred children (and their parents/caregivers) to existing services in their local communities
  • Keeping primary care providers informed about children’s progress
  • Supporting healthy social, emotional and cognitive development

The Department is actively working to strengthen its capacity to address health inequities in Iowa. Health equity is defined as supporting opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible through the reduction of barriers in environmental, social, economic and other conditions which impact health. 1st Five promotes health equity through increased use of standardized developmental screening tools on a universal basis to minimize bias in assessment and by individualizing the connection to services based on a child’s and their parents’/caregivers’ unique needs for support. The standardized developmental screening tools supported are those that have been tested across disparate population groups and shown to reliably indicate concerns. Connection to services addresses both medical and social determinants of health. 

The primary focus of 1st Five is on children with less intense needs, for example, those who need preventive care or are identified as at-risk of developmental delay and are in need of supportive and preventive early interventions. 1st Five assures that appropriate referrals, interventions, and follow-up will occur.
