After an NYSHealth project has closed, we usually write a grant outcome report to capture the initiative’s impact. With input from the grantee and NYSHealth program staff, grant outcome reports take an honest look back at the program, document the work completed, and share lessons learned, including how we might have better supported our grantee’s efforts.
Exploring the Establishment of a Wellness Trust in Brooklyn
In 2016, NYSHealth awarded a planning grant to Research Foundation of the City University of New York (CUNY) to explore the feasibility of and steps needed to establish and support the Trust.
Helping Older Adults Live Longer and Better
The Aging Mastery Program® (AMP) is an approach that helps older adults develop the skills to improve their wellbeing and stability so that they will not only live longer, but live better. In 2015, NYSHealth awarded the National Council on the Aging, Inc., (NCOA) a grant to spread and evaluate AMP in upstate New York as well as secure sustainable financing for the program.
Assessing the Effects of an Affordable Care Act Repeal on Veterans’ Health
In light of the national attention focused on health reform in 2017, NYSHealth funded a RAND report to examine the effects of federal health reform on a unique population that is typically not associated with the ACA—veterans. This project was particularly unique because it examined intersecting interest areas for the Foundation, including health reform, health coverage, and veterans’ health.
Creating Pathways to a Statewide Community Health Worker Association
In 2016, NYSHealth awarded a grant to the Do Canto Group to help identify a pathway to creating such a statewide Community Health Worker association.
Assessing New York State’s Population Health Investments
In 2015, NYSHealth awarded Taconic Education and Research Fund, Inc., as fiscal sponsor to Lake Fleet Consulting, a grant to assess New York’s funding streams for population health and map out how those funds are being allocated within communities and organizations across the State.
Helping New Yorkers Become Savvier Health Care Consumers
The health care system is incredibly complex to understand and navigate, and consumer-friendly information about prices, quality, and other aspects of care is lacking.
Removing Barriers to Care for People with Physical Disabilities
People with physical disabilities make up approximately 11% of New York City’s population, but they often lack access to adequate primary care. Evidence shows that a high proportion of primary care providers lack the training and experience to care for people with physical disabilities.
Addressing Workforce Shortages at Federally Qualified Health Centers
The Affordable Care Act greatly increased the number of New Yorkers served by federally qualified health centers (FQHCs).
Aligning Behavioral Health Care Services for Low-Income New Yorkers
In 2014, Congress authorized the development of Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinics (CCBHCs) to provide mental health and addiction services for low-income Americans with serious behavioral health needs.
