North Penn Community Health Foundation: elderly support services

Posted by North Penn Community Health Foundation on January 12, 2015

The North Penn Community Health Foundation (NPCHF) is now accepting applications from organizations that work with the dual eligible elderly population in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. This grant initiative has been informed by what the foundation has learned about the needs of this population and the likelihood that Pennsylvania will institute managed long term supports and services (MLTSS) within the next two years. A workgroup of knowledgeable stakeholders met and, with support from NPCHF, produced a report outlining nine recommendations designed to improve MLTSS readiness and a system of care to improve access, quality of care and desired outcomes for the dual-eligible elderly population.

These grants are designed primarily for two purposes:  to help inform public policy through the experiences of the organizations receiving grant support and to help organizations prepare for a managed long term supports and services business environment. In order to support the changes that will need to occur, the foundation is offering three types of grants – Readiness, Pilot, and Implementation – to organizations interested in working on one of four recommendations outlined in the report. Full details on the grants, including eligibility criteria, the specific recommendations covered by these grants, application deadlines and access to the foundation’s online application portal can be found here.

The deadline to apply is January 30, 2015.
