This Learning Collaborative, currently underway for the second year, is designed for health centers who anticipate the need for a capital project in the next one to five years. It is offered free of charge with support from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
Through a series of six monthly interactive learning sessions conducted between March and September 2019, health center participants will be provided with guidance to successfully navigate the process of building or renovating facilities. To facilitate these learnings, Capital Link will provide a variety of valuable tools and resources, both publicly available and Capital Link-developed, throughout the collaborative.
