Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI) is requesting proposals for its next round of grant funding to increase access to its Centering model of care, which is focused on patient-centered, evidence-based group care.
CHI is a nonprofit organization that works with health care providers to improve care for moms, babies, and families. Its Centering model is proven to have a positive impact on health outcomes and to reduce racial health disparities. CHI sustains Centering programs in 560 practice sites, including many at essential hospitals.
This round of grant funding specifically aims to increase patient access to CenteringParenting, family-centered well-child care in federally qualified health centers and community health centers, and ultimately eliminate the financial barrier to those in resource-limited communities.
Proposals for this cycle are due Jan. 7, 2019 (for implementation to start by June 15). A new grant program website which includes details about the funding opportunity and instructions on how to apply.
