New funding for care coordination and systems change

The Health Equity Project, announced in September 2021, aims to reduce the health disparities associated with housing instability, food insecurity, and health system complexity by connecting people from historically disadvantaged populations to needed social services. MI Community Care, the WHI’s care coordination intervention for individuals with complex lives and medical conditions, will be a key participant in the work. 

CHRT will provide administrative support to four participating regions across Michigan: the Genesee Community Health Access Program (G-CHAP), administered by the Greater Flint Health Coalition; the Jackson Care Hub, administered by the Jackson Collaborative Network; the MI Community Care (MiCC) program in Washtenaw and Livingston Counties, administered by CHRT on behalf of the Washtenaw Health Initiative; and a community integrated health network, coordinated by Health Net of West Michigan with multiple community partners in Kent County.
