LICN PLANNING PROJECT AND IMPLEMENTATION GRANT REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS
We are pleased to announce the CMSP Governing Board has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the CMSP Local Indigent Care Needs (LICN) Grants Program for counties and not-for-profit organizations in the following 10 CMSP counties that have not already received LICN funding:
LICN Grants may 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.
LICN Grant funding is available in two program tracks; Planning Project Grants (Track One) of up to $50,000 per project over a twelve-month planning period, or up to $75,000 if the project serves more than one CMSP county, and Implementation Program Grants (Track Two) of up to $500,000 per year up to a 3-year period (up to $1,500,000 total). Eligible applicants include CMSP counties and non-profit agencies (in the counties listed above) with demonstrated capacity to create and manage a program involving multiple stakeholders.
Governing Board staff will conduct two webinars to assist potential applicants. The first will highlight successful LICN projects in CMSP counties to provide applicants with potential project ideas. The second will walk applicants through RFP requirements and the submission process. Dates, times, and links to the webinars are located below:
