GrantTracker+ is cloud-based, has no standard implementation fee, and costs only $150 per month for CPCA members ($200 per month for non-members) regardless of the number of users or amount of data in the system!

Regional Complex Care Stakeholder Convenings
The National Center for Complex Health and Social Needs (National Center) has released a request for proposals (RFP) for organizations to host a Regional Complex Care convening. In developing the Blueprint for Complex Care, the National Center identified the need for more local connectivity to create coordinated systems of care for individuals with complex health and social needs. To address this concern, the National Center will hold six convenings of regional complex care stakeholders across the country to address complex care barriers in their own communities. This project aims to facilitate information sharing and collaboration on a regional level and to foster ecosystems of complex care, as outlined in the Blueprint for Complex Care. Six (6) awards of $5,000 are available. The RFP will close on February 29, 2020. To find more information, click here
