Local Indigent Care Needs

Local Indigent Care Needs (LICN) grants were created to expand the delivery of locally directed indigent care services in CMSP counties.  Populations served include low-income uninsured and under-insured adults who lack access to health, behavioral health, or associated support services in CMSP counties.

LICN projects:

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

LICN Grant funding is awarded via two program tracks.  Track One – Planning Project grants range up to $50,000 per project (up to $75,000 if the project serves more than one CMSP county).  Track Two- Implementation Program grants range up to $1.5 million over a 3-year period (up to $500,000 per year).

To date, CMSP has awarded 22 Planning Project grants and 27 Implementation Program grants totaling $37.6 million.

This page will be updated if a new LICN request for proposals is released.
