Re: Letters of Intent for Upcoming Healthcare Transformation Collaboratives Funding Now Being Accepted
Please be aware that entities intending to apply for upcoming Healthcare
Transformation Collaboratives funding may now formally notify the Illinois
Department of Healthcare and Family Services of their intention.
Entities are strongly encouraged to file a Letter of Intent if they are
planning to apply for funding in Fiscal Year 2022 or future cycles. Letters for
those seeking funding in this fall’s cycle are to be received no later than June
Instructions and the form to complete a Letter of Intent may be found at
the Healthcare Transformation
Collaboratives website under "Applications and Tools."
The Healthcare Transformation Collaboratives program makes available as
much as $150 million per fiscal year beginning in State Fiscal Year 2021. This
funding is available to collaborations between care providers, including
preventative care, primary care, specialty care, hospital services, mental
health and substance abuse services, and community-based entities that address
the social determinants of health. Priority will be given to collaborations
that include safety net hospitals or critical access hospitals.
The application period for the first round of awards has closed; however,
a second round of applications will be available for the fall.
