New NYSHealth RFP: Promoting and Managing Growth at Primary Care Centers in Four Regions of New York State


Successful implementation of health reform will require expanded primary care capacity. With this Request for Proposals (RFP), NYSHealth seeks to promote fundamental, lasting changes in the community health centers (CHCs) that comprise a cornerstone of New York’s health care delivery system. NYSHealth recognizes that expanding health care access—whether establishing a new site, increasing the type of services available, or pursuing a merger—takes thoughtful planning and resources. Through this grant initiative, CHCs may conduct the data analyses needed for clinical capacity planning or preparation of a business plan; retain legal counsel; hire real estate advisors; enhance recruitment efforts; or build their internal management infrastructure.

Eligible applicants include Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs), FQHC look-alikes, and comprehensive diagnostic and treatment centers in four regions of the State: Western New York, Central New York, the Finger Lakes region, and Long Island. Eligible organizations may apply for grants as well as supplemental program-related investments.
