President's Discretionary

Southwestern AHEC, Inc.

2017 - $8,033

This funding will support the community health worker advisory committee of the State Innovation Model, a federally funded effort to improve health care. Although participation of community health workers on the committee is critical to shaping the development of the workforce and its role in health reform, participation can be difficult because many employers of community health workers do not pay them for committee work or grant time off for it. This funding will support stipends to offset the costs to community health workers participating on the committee, as well as efforts to ensure that the committee work is effective.
