  • Coro New York Leadership Center NYSHealth Healthy Neighborhoods Grantee Training Consultancy Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $39,900

By offering responsive and time-sensitive technical assistance funding to grantees and their partners, NYSHealth can help them meet their goals. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded Coro New York Leadership Center a grant to develop and deliver a leadership development initiative for residents of the six communities.

  • Research Foundation for the State University of New York Building Healthy Communities Conference Scholarship Priority Area: Other $1184https://www.rfsuny.org/

  • Fund for Public Health in New York City East Harlem Community Engagement Strategies Priority Area: Building Healthy Communities $50,000

    The Healthy Neighborhoods Fund community of East Harlem is a culturally diverse neighborhood. But like many neighborhoods of color, East Harlem has experienced a systemic lack of investment in resources and continues to experience political and economic inequality. These factors have contributed to making East Harlem the 12th poorest neighborhood in New York City. East Harlem residents experience worse health outcomes than residents of many other New York City neighborhoods, and preventable chronic diseases, such as heart disease, diabetes, and obesity, are common. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded the Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY) a grant to develop community engagement strategies that improve access to public spaces and create opportunities for East Harlem residents to be physically active.

  • Jericho Road Ministries Expanding Access to Primary Care in Buffalo’s Underserved East Side Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $200,000

    Buffalo is among the poorest large cities in the nation, with many of its residents facing a multitude of health challenges and barriers to primary care and community supports. Currently, four of the poorest ZIP codes in Buffalo’s East Side do not have adequate access to primary care, with an estimated individual-to-primary care physician ratio greatly exceeding that required to qualify as a Primary Care Health Provider Shortage Area. Jericho Road Community Health Center, a federally qualified health center (FQHC), provides primary care services to more than 12,000 patients in the Buffalo region. To fill the gaps in service caused by closures of other East Side clinics, Jericho Road completed a 10-year strategic plan that outlined the development of a new community health center on Buffalo’s East Side to provide health care and wraparound services for underserved and low-income residents. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded Jericho Road Ministries a grant to expand the FQHC and provide primary care services to additional underserved residents of Buffalo’s East Side.

  • New York Lawyers for the Public Interest Detained and Denied: Improving Health Care Access for Immigrant Detainees Priority Area: Special Projects Fund $200,000

    Each year, thousands of New York City residents are detained in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention jails. Although not charged with criminal violations, they are primarily held to ensure that they attend future hearings concerning their immigration status. Most of these detainees are lawful permanent residents (predominantly green card holders) and people who have lived in this country for decades, maintained employment, raised families, and had access to health care in the community through Medicaid or private insurance. But detention breaks that connection, making them reliant on the immigration detention facility, a local county jail, and ICE for health care services, some of which fail to provide adequate medical treatment. Among the many barriers to quality health care faced by immigrants in detention are a lack of information on requesting assistance, denial of health and mental health services, and a lack of discharge planning. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded New York Lawyers for the Public Interest (NYPLI) a grant to develop and launch a comprehensive program to ensure that immigrants with serious illnesses who are confined to detention facilities receive adequate health care services while in custody and access to health care upon their release.

  • St. Barnabas Hospital Spreading Open Notes in the Bronx Priority Area: Empowering Health Care Consumers $124,638

    True consumer empowerment begins when patients have access to the information they need to talk to their health care providers, share information, and develop a trusted relationship. OpenNotes is a national movement that spurs real patient engagement by giving patients and their caregivers access to the clinical notes written by health care providers. When patients have such access, they can develop stronger relationships with their providers; initiate conversations about or co-develop their care plan; develop a sense of ownership over their health information and treatment decisions; better remember what was discussed during a visit; become patient-safety partners by identifying errors in their records; and take medications as prescribed. To foster the spread of OpenNotes to more New York State hospitals and patients, NYSHealth issued a request for proposals, Spreading OpenNotes in New York State. Through this initiative, NYSHealth is supporting hospitals across the State in implementing OpenNotes at their facilities. In 2017, NYSHealth awarded St. Barnabas Hospital (SBH) a grant to participate in this initiative.
