Priority Areas

NYSHealth concentrates most of our activities and grantmaking in two strategic priority areas. In each area, we have developed a set of specific goals and focused strategies to advance our efforts. To have an impact in these areas, we make grants, convene key stakeholders, and commission and disseminate policy analyses that inform health care policy and practice throughout New York State

Other Focus Areas

NYSHealth maintains a special commitment to two areas of focus outside of our current programmatic priority areas (healthy food, healthy lives and empowering health care consumers). Learn more about our Special Projects Fund and our efforts to meet the needs of returning veterans and their families.

Past Priority Areas

NYSHealth is committed to supporting a range of projects that improve health at a regional or statewide level, particularly for vulnerable New Yorkers. As the health needs and opportunities in New York change over time, our work also evolves to ensure we can have as much impact as possible. We often build upon our previous investments and use them to inform our current priority areas and grantmaking strategies. You can learn more about our earlier work to improve the health of New Yorkers from across the State.
