Through this funding opportunity, the Administration for Community Living plans to award approximately 10 cooperative agreements to domestic public or private non-profit entities.
The intent of these awards is to provide funding directly to community-based organizations (CBOs) either serving or interested in serving as a Network Lead Entity to develop Community Integrated Health Networks that contract with health care sector entities (e.g., accountable care organizations, health plans, managed care organizations, hospitals, health systems, and more) for coordinated access and delivery of services that address social determinant of health. This is further encouraged in the National Strategy for COVID Response and Pandemic Preparedness which highlights the need to facilitate linkages between clinical and social services given the increased need for social services during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the need to work with community-based, multi-sector organizations to align health and social interventions.
