SCC PAC Meeting

All SCC partners are encouraged to save the date for the next Project Advisory Committee (PAC):
Friday, June 17, 2016
9:00am - 11:00am
Location: Islandia Marriott, Islandia, NY
The Committee's mission is to furnish collaboration and support the collaborative goals, strategies, and initiatives among the SCC partners with respect to improving the health status of Medicaid and uninsured communities in Suffolk County. 
We require partner organizations to send a managerial representative and workforce representative to the PAC meetings if they have 50+ employees (and if unionized, those workforce representatives must be union representatives). If your organization has fewer than 50 employees, please send at least one managerial representative.
On a previous DSRIP IN ACTION dated May 19th, we announced a NYS DOH, Office of Health Insurance Programs Request for Applications (RFA) to announce the availability of funds to support strategic planning activities for Community Based Organizations to facilitate their engagement in DSRIP activities.
This RFA is intended to solicit applications for grants to assist CBO Consortiums in planning activities to identify business requirements and formulate strategies for short-term needs as well as longer term plans that the CBO consortium may envision for sustainability in system transformation. Overall, this will allow them to better position themselves for continuing engagement with PPSs in DSRIP projects, and consequently, value based payment and contracting.

It is the Department's intent to award one award for each of the three regions outlined in the RFA. The three regions consist of New York City, Long Island and Mid-Hudson, and Rest of State.  A maximum funding amount for each region is $2,500,000.

To learn more about this opportunity, please go to the NYS Grants Gateway
. To locate the opportunity on Grants Gateway, search by the opportunity name: Community Based Organization (CBO) Planning Grant.
Anticipated Contract Term: 12/1/2016-11/30/2017
Due Date for Applications:  8/16/2016 by 4:00 p.m. ET
An Applicant Conference Call will be held for this RFA. The Department requests that potential applicants register for this conference by sending an e-mail to OHIPContracts@health.ny.gov to insure that adequate accommodations be made for the number of prospective attendees. A maximum number of two representatives from each prospective applicant will be permitted to attend the applicant conference, if calling from separate phones.
