CareQuest Institute for Oral Health issues RFP for efforts toward health care transformation

CareQuest Institute for Oral Health®, is a leading national nonprofit focused on creating a more accessible, equitable, and integrated oral health system.

CareQuest Institute has issued a Community and Care Transformation RFP to fund projects and partners geared for healthcare transformation. Through the RFP, CareQuest Institute seeks to fund projects and partners that combine two core interrelated elements of work: (a) carry forward care transformation concepts (listed above) and (b) ensure authentic and deep community engagement is embedded in the practical implementation of those concepts.

Examples of projects that fall within this RFP include a safety net partner piloting new value-based care procedures within clinical practice, overseen by a representative patient/community body that has active input into the planning, implementation, and evaluation of the new practice impact on patient experience; a state policy organization utilizing a formal process that ensures ongoing community input and involvement to advocate for medical/dental integration measures within state Medicaid policy; a community-based or grassroots organization building power among community members to participate in advocacy in local or state policy spaces around care transformation concepts; and a safety net provider collaborating with community partners to expand and use innovative workforce models that are representative of their patients and families.

Through this RFP, CareQuest Institute will fund 10 projects at $125,000 each, and grant funds may be used for project staff salaries, subgrants to project partners/community organizations, consultant fees, data collection and analysis, meetings, supplies, activities related to fundraising and development, project-related travel, and other direct project expenses.

Applicants must be based and operating in the United States or its territories. They may be either a public entity or nonprofit organization tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
