COVID-19 Community Health Care Resiliency Fund
Recognizing that New York State’s community health centers have been operationally and financially challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Primary Care Development Corporation (PCDC) and Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) have developed the COVID-19 Community Health Care Resiliency Fund to enable community-based health care providers to restore, sustain, and enhance operations.
The new $10 million COVID-19 Community Health Care Resiliency Fund provides financing and technical assistance to enable community health centers to sustain their operations and continue to meet the needs of their communities during the COVID-19 crisis and through recovery.
Applications for the loan fund and/or technical assistance should be submitted to: firstname.lastname@example.org
