Letters of Support

Policies and instructions for community health centers to request various letters of support from CHCANYS.

As New York State's Primary Care Association, CHCANYS strengthens the delivery of health care to the underserved and reinforces health centers' central role in New York's primary care safety net. CHCANYS' strength and effectiveness as your PCA depends not only on our staying continuously apprised of regulatory and policy developments but also on our having access to up-to-date, detailed information about the state's health centers and the communities they serve. Information from our members and other stakeholders allows us to provide the highest quality technical assistance as well as to compellingly and successfully advocate for those measures that strengthen New York's community health care system.

In considering your request to CHCANYS for a letter of support, therefore, we will also ask that you commit to providing us with certain specific information about your project and your organization. Further, organizations requesting a letter of support will be required to meet certain criteria to demonstrate the strength of their projects.
