Community Clinics Initiative: Strong Clinics, Healthy Communities
Home About CCI Grant Information Library Newsletters Related Links Search

Since 1999, CCI has been engaged with community clinics in California to help build their capacities and those of their networks and consortia by providing resources, evidence-based programming and evaluation, education, and training. CCI's grants and related programs have supported individual clinics, networks and the community clinic field statewide. Our current programs are listed below:

Community Health Center Innovations
In 2011 we launched a new program in partnership with Blue Shield of California Foundation to provide funding to strengthen the capacity of clinics to undertake needed practice transformations that are framed by the concepts of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement's Triple Aim of improved population health, better patient experience and reduced cost.

Health Home Innovation Fund
In 2011 we launched a new program to provide flexible funding to support the development of regional implementation of Health Homes for low-income populations and communities of color throughout California. We have two overarching goals for this work:
-To develop and advance a vision of a fully-integrated Health Home for low-income neighborhoods and communities of color in California; and
-To develop and advance a package of payment reforms that will incentivize the implementation and sustainability of Health Homes. More >

Networking for Community Health
In 2008 we launched a new grants program to help clinics build their capacity to catalyze, manage and sustain networking efforts with partners outside their organization to help them become true centers of community health. The priorities of this program are: Partnerships (connect a broad circle of partners, build networks and social capital, build the system); Leadership (articulate a vision of community health, cultivate leadership at all levels in the organization, develop board and patient leadership); and Research & Data (a proactive research agenda, using data to show improvements in community health and as an organizing tool). Our final round of funding for this program was awarded in 2010. More >
