Description: The purpose of this initiative is to support the development and enhancement of Network Lead Entities (NLEs) which are providing key access functions within a community such as coordination of information and referral, screening, care coordination, care transitions, eligibility and enrollment and person centered planning. A growing share of community-based organizations (CBOs) are coordinating or participating in community-based networks of various types and orientations in order to create and respond to an increasing demand from health sector organizations that seek services and supports at volumes, scopes, and geographic areas larger than a single CBO can typically meet. This has given rise to the emergence of the community integrated health network (CIHN) and the network lead entity (NLE) that resides at the CIHN’s core. The intent of this FoA is to provide funding directly to NLEs to build their network maturity and align their service capabilities in order to contract with health care sector entities (e.g., accountable care organizations, health plans, managed care organizations, hospitals, health systems, and more) to coordinate and streamline access to all health and social service options so that individuals can obtain the care they need through a single intake, assessment and eligibility determination process.
