Request for Proposals
The Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI) has launched an aggressive plan to expand access to the Centering model of group healthcare in the communities where group care can have the greatest impact. With this expansion, CHI has developed a program offering technical assistance and implementation services to 130 eligible sites - primarily in FQHCs and community health centers - eliminating the financial barrier to those in resource-limited communities. These grants will be awarded in several waves over two years beginning in January 2018.
The Request for Proposals outlines in detail the services awarded and requirements to apply.

There will be additional opportunities to apply later in 2018 for implementation beginning in January 2019.
