Modernizing Our Health System

Accountable Communities for Health unite local leaders in the common cause of improving health

NEWS UPDATE: Funding Opportunity Upcoming, Informational Webinars on Dec. 1 & 8

The California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI) is excited to announce that it will be releasing an RFP early in January 2023 (with a due date approximately six weeks later) to establish up to 25 additional Accountable Communities for Health (ACHs) throughout the state; community grantees will receive $400K over 2.5 years starting July 2023.

This effort will support the establishment of ACH collaboratives in areas of the state that experience significant health inequities. In addition, because ACHs will be asked to identify and work on one of the state’s many initiatives that rely on cross sector partnerships, ACHs will be able to bring their unique attributes and skills to help these initiatives succeed.

CACHI will host two informational webinars on December 1 (11:00 am – 12:30 pm, Zoom Registration) and December 8 (12:00 – 1:30 pm, Zoom Registration) to help potential applicants learn more about this opportunity and begin conversations with their partners and communities. (You only need attend one webinar as they will provide the same information.)

Please register at one of the links above and feel free to share this announcement with your partners and others who may be interested in learning more about this exciting opportunity.
