A Quarterly Resource Bulletin from Capital Link Spring 2018
Message from the CEO
While some pressure has been alleviated due to the recent FY18 spending package providing dedicated funding for health centers, the day-to-day challenges of providing effective and efficient primary care continues. Among the many priorities, health centers continue to devote significant resources to building a strong financial and operational foundation to support growth and long-term sustainability.
This issue of Capital Ink highlights a variety of resources, both by Capital Link and industry stakeholders, to assist health centers in improving performance and adapting operations in a rapidly changing environment. Processes for moving forward with primary care teams are described in the recording of our April HRSA-sponsored webinar, Optimizing Team Resources: Patient/Provider Scheduling and Panel Size. Also included are two new funding announcements: a grant opportunity for health centers pursuing New Markets Tax Credit financing in 2019 and 2020, and a HRSA supplemental funding opportunity for existing Health Center Program grantees for expenses related to the consequences of the recent hurricanes.
