  • Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (fiscal sponsor: Tides Center) Building Healthy Communities Conference Scholarship Priority Area: Other $314

    A key goal of NYSHealth’s Building Healthy Communities priority area is to create healthy communities that lead to more New Yorkers of all ages eating healthy foods, being physically active, and having access to a range of programs that encourage healthy life choices. Many organizations across the State are doing smart, innovative work that is relevant to NYSHealth’s work to improve health in New York neighborhoods. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at conferences and other convenings in New York and nationally. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so. To address this issue, NYSHealth is awarding grants through its Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Communities Request for Proposals (RFP). Through this RFP, NYSHealth is sponsoring community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences related to building healthy communities. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group (NESAWG), through fiscal sponsor Tides Center, a grant to participate in this initiative.

  • Medicaid Matters New York (fiscal sponsor: Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy) Understanding the Information and Transparency Needs of Medicaid Managed Care Enrollees Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $80,086

    One-quarter of New York State’s population, more than 6.2 million people, relies on Medicaid for health insurance coverage. Most of these individuals are enrolled in Medicaid managed care organizations (MCOs), which contract with the State to assume responsibility for Medicaid enrollees’ health care. For people enrolled in Medicaid, with fewer resources, accessing information to maintain their health can be challenging. Transparency initiatives are of great value for enabling more informed and activated patients, but they may be leaving behind the millions of New Yorkers who rely on Medicaid. For example, transparency tools on quality variation among providers could be of value to this population, but it is unclear whether enrollees have access to or are aware of these tools. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded Medicaid Matters New York (MMNY), through fiscal sponsor Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy, a grant to understand the informational needs Medicaid enrollees.

  • Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy Enhancing Oral Health and Developing a Blueprint for Sustainable Success Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $175,000

    Although oral health in the United States has improved overall, tooth decay remains the most common chronic childhood disease—five times more prevalent than asthma. Low-income and minority families in particular bear a high burden of dental problems, but are less likely than middle- or high-income families to have access to preventive dental services. In 2013, NYSHealth supported the Schuyler Center for Analysis and Advocacy in efforts to educate policymakers and communities in New York State about dental disease and make recommendations for policies to improve population oral health across socioeconomic status, race, and age. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Schuyler Center a grant to further this statewide oral health campaign.

  • Foundation of Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital Expanding the Saranac River Trail Greenway to Facilitate Resident Physical Activity Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $175,000

    The County Health Rankings place Clinton County in the bottom quarter of counties in New York State on the measure of access to physical activity. One-quarter of residents report being physically inactive, which contributes to the high rates of obesity among children and adults in the county. Recent population-based health improvement initiatives have focused on increasing residents’ physical activity levels. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded The Foundation of Champlain Valley Physicians Hospital (CVPH) a grant to develop a portion of the Saranac River trail, the Lapierre Lane Riverway, to increase physical activity and outdoor recreation opportunities for community members.
