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.

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.
