Connecticut Association of School Based Health Centers

2017 - $108,267

School-based health centers provide primary care, behavioral health, and dental services in schools, ensuring that children and teens have access to needed health services. The Connecticut Association of School Based Health Centers, which includes 88 school-based health centers in 22 communities, is working to ensure the financial sustainability of these clinics by helping them prepare for new payment models. This 15 month grant will allow the association to continue its work helping school-based health centers collect, report, and track their performance on quality measures. It will expand its project to four additional organizations that operate 10 school-based health centers: Branford Public Schools, Stratford Health Department, Optimus Health Care in Bridgeport, and Child and Family Agency in Southeastern Connecticut.
