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 U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Health Resources and Services Administration’s Maternal and Child Health Bureau. Since its establishment, the EMSC Program has provided grant funding to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and five U.S. territories.
The Federal EMSC Program also supports two resource centers: the EMSC National Resource Center (NRC) (not a U.S. Government Web site), located in Washington, DC, and the National EMSC Data Analysis Resource Center (NEDARC), located in Salt Lake City, UT. (See Resource Centers for more information about the services provided by each center.)
