The Community Health Care Association of New York State today announced that New York’s community health centers are the recipients of nearly $7.5 million dollars in federal grant funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). The funding will be used to continue to improve quality, efficiency, and the effectiveness of healthcare delivery in the communities they serve. The average award in New York State was $118,900 – about 30% higher than the average award to health centers outside of the Empire State.
On July 30, CHCANYS submitted comments stating our significant concerns with the proposed rule, specifically as it pertains to the patient-provider relationship, and strongly urged the Administration to withdraw this proposed rule and to reconsider its course of action.
CHCANYS is the voice for community-based primary care in New York, representing more than 60 federally qualified health centers (FQHC) that operate more than 600 individual sites in every region of the state, serving nearly 2 million patients annually. CHCANYS offers a wide range of services to its members, including advocacy and policy analysis, training and education, clinical quality initiatives, workforce development, and health information technology.
