Local Indigent Care Needs

Local Indigent Care Needs (LICN) Grants support county-specific or multi-county efforts to expand the delivery of locally directed indigent care services for low-income uninsured and under-insured adults that lack access to health, behavioral health, and associated support services in CMSP counties.

The principal goals of the LICN program are to:

  • Promote timely delivery of necessary medical, behavioral health and support services to locally identified target populations;
  • Link these populations to other community resources and support; and
  • Improve overall health outcomes for these target populations.

To date, 19 Planning Project Grants and 14 Implementation Project Grants have been awarded approximately $20 million in 23 of CMSP’s 35 counties.
