Hispanic Health Council, Inc.

2019 - $50,000

The Hispanic Health Council has long supported an increased role for community health workers – frontline public health workers who can serve as a bridge between clinical care and patients’ communities and everyday lives. This funding will support the organization’s continued work to advance sustainable ways to support the workforce, including helping to assure that the state’s implementation of a voluntary certification process for community health workers is successful, providing education and skill-building for community health workers about the coming certification process, and working with state agencies and commercial insurers on ways to pay for community health worker services in a sustainable way.
