CBO Grant Implementation
I’m very happy to report that we’ve been chosen as the co-lead organization for Allegany and Cattaraugus counties to implement the New York State Department of Health’s Community Based Organizations (CBO) program. We joined a successful application by S2AY last year to apply for the CBO planning grant. The program seeks to address the social determinants of health by engaging community based organizations so they can support regional performing provider systems and engage underserved populations. We’re working with Healthy Community Alliance in northern Cattaraugus County and Ardent Solutions in Allegany County to recruit non-profit community based organizations for the project. CBOs must have budgets of less than $5 million and be unable to bill Medicaid for services in order to participate. If you know of any organizations fitting that criteria who you think might be a good fit for that project, please let me know. Only two CBO grants were awarded, one for New York City and the other for the rest of the state (ROS). I want to thank the Department of Health for trusting us and our partners with this important project.
STHCS Future
Over the past year, the STHCS Board of Directors and staff have been charting our future course by planning our move into a new facility. I’m excited to report everything is on track and we moved close to our goal this week as our engineering, architectural and renovation plans were submitted. We have a signed agreement from the building’s current owner and a commitment letter from the bank, clearing our way to purchase the building and renovate it. When we’re done, the building will be the new home for our offices, a distance-learning center capable of training up to 50 people at a time, additional break out rooms and training rooms. I want to thank the Board of Directors for developing this vision for our future and for supporting this project.
