2018 - $25,000

Three Connecticut organizations are developing programs to use community health workers to better link clinical care with their patients’ communities – part of the community and clinical integration program of Connecticut’s State Innovation Model, a federally funded initiative focused on redesigning how health care is financed and delivered. This grant will allow the Penn Center for Community Health Workers to provide technical assistance to these efforts to ensure that each community health worker program is as effective as possible and can be evaluated to determine the return on investment to ensure financial sustainability.
