National Safety Net Advancement Center Issues Safety-Net Implementation RFP

The National Safety Net Advancement Center aims to transform the ability of safety-net organizations to respond to payment and care delivery reform efforts in health care’s fast evolving financial and delivery environment.

To that end, SNAC has issued a Request for Proposals aimed at helping safety-net organizations overcoming challenges posed by payment and care delivery reform. Five to seven grants of up to $80,000 will be awarded in support of projects that contribute to the growing evidence base on how to successfully implement payment and care delivery reforms in safety net organizations.

The program is open to safety-net organizations seeking to overcome an implementation challenge impeding payment and care delivery progress. For the purposes of this RFP, a safety-net health system is defined as one that provides a significant level of care to low-income, uninsured, and vulnerable populations. The health care safety net encompasses the following six sectors: 1) federally qualified health centers, 2) community mental health centers, 3) public county hospitals, 4) tribal health centers, 5) critical access hospitals; and 6) safety net oral heath providers.
