Recognizing the critical importance of health and mental health care to individuals, families, and communities, the Foundation invests in programs or projects that achieve results aligned with the objectives outlined below. Please note that the "Results Sought" reflect the specific outcomes of highest interest to us at this time.

Expand and strengthen quality out-of-hospital health care for the most underserved and vulnerable populations.

Results Sought:

  1. Increase in New Yorkers benefitting from primary care from a “Patient-Centered Medical Home” or comparable out-patient community-based provider
  2. Increase in New Yorkers benefitting from coordinated care, care management, and/or multi-disciplinary services and supports provided in an accessible community- or home-based setting, with a focus on programs targeting individuals living in poverty, with multiple chronic or behavioral health conditions, and/or who are transportation-challenged, including frail elders
  3. Increase in New Yorkers receiving services and supports aimed at reducing unnecessary hospital admissions, readmissions, or emergency room use, and successfully transitioning patients into out-of-hospital community-based care and care management

(Priority will be given to programs capable of being sustained with earned or public sector revenue, producing outcomes of long-term value in a short time, and/or of reducing cost to the system while maintaining or improving quality of care to the individual.)
