HRSA’s Loan Guarantee Program: An Overview
Thursday, September 29, 2022 from 2 - 3 PM EST
If your health center is looking for additional financing for an upcoming capital project, join us to learn more about the benefits, eligibility, and application process of the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Health Center Facility Loan Guarantee Program (LGP). A loan from the HRSA LGP can enhance your credit profile and cover up to 80% of the principal amount of loans made by non-federal lenders. The LGP also reduces lender risk and allows a lender to provide a loan under more favorable terms than otherwise possible. This webinar will also provide an overview of the next offering of our HRSA Loan Guarantee Program Learning Collaborative beginning later this fall.
Presenters: Jonathan Chapman, Chief Project Officer, Capital Link
Factors Influencing Health Equity Among Community Health Center Patients
Tuesday, October 25, 2022 from 2 -3 PM EST
Join us to learn how specific patient and organizational characteristics influence health equity among community health center patients. Utilizing findings from a recent data-driven analysis, conducted by Capital Link with the assistance of HealthLandscape and funded by Cedars-Sinai, we will explore how certain health center characteristics, such as patient population demographics, contribute to financial performance and the ability to achieve equitable access and outcomes for patients. We’ll also provide recommendations for addressing and improving health center patient equity and inclusion, and how to identify health inequities at your own health center utilizing our new Patient Profile and Health Equity Analysis.
Presenters: Susan Petrie, COO, Capital Link, and Jen Saber, Senior Director of Data and Information
