EMSC NRC Funding

The EMSC NRC is housed within Children’s National Health System, one of the nation's top pediatric hospitals and a proven leader in the development and application of innovative new treatments for childhood illness and injury. In 2012, the EMSC NRC received its fifth multi-year funding award to support the federal EMSC Program.

The federal EMSC Program is designed to ensure that all children and adolescents – no matter where they live, attend school, or travel – receive appropriate care in a health emergency. It is administered by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau. As of 2015, the federal Program provides grant funding to 49 states, the District of Columbia, five U.S. territories, and the freely associated states, which includes the Republics of the Marshall Islands and Palau, and the Federated States of Micronesia.
