Wellness & Prevention

The CMSP Wellness and Prevention grant submission period has closed.

In 2016, the CMSP Governing Board approved the Wellness & Prevention Grant Pilot Project (Grant) to test the effectiveness of providing local-level wellness and prevention services to CMSP eligible and potentially eligible persons.  CMSP awarded 31 grants for a total of $6,681,670 to assist projects in addressing at least one of these three key areas:

  • Community Wellness: Community based, collaborative strategies to provide wellness and prevention services for uninsured populations, with a focus on potential CMSP enrollees.
  • Whole Person Care: Integrated systems development strategies that link local health and human service delivery systems to better serve CMSP enrollees, potential CMSP enrollees, and other publicly funded populations.
  • Addressing the Social Determinants of Health: Collaborative local efforts to work across five determinants – Economic Stability, Education, Social and Community Context, Health and Health Care, and Neighborhood and Built Environment – to establish policies and strategies that positively influence social and economic conditions and those that support changes in individual behavior for the uninsured, including potential CMSP enrollees
