Communities Together for Health Equity is strongly seeking an amendment to implement the Innovation Funding Proposal below it is the only way Community Based Organizations will have routine funding to implement important projects that contribute to the goals of DSRIP. Even with incarceration the innovation fund will contribute to important Community Based Services for the

Communities Together for Health Equity presented this Proposal at the last CMS Public Advocate and Managed care meeting. A copy was sent to the New York State Department of Health Medicaid Director who has not responded.
