Campaign to stimulate community-based primary care models

This grant provides partial support for the Foundation's participation in the 1996-1997 Models That Work Campaign. The Models That Work Campaign is a successful public-private partnership designed to stimulate the identification and replication of innovative community-based primary health care models that meet the needs of vulnerable, uninsured, and underserved populations. The Campaign was initiated by the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) in partnership with 26 national organizations. It included a competition to identify innovative programs, a national symposium to recognize their success, and technical assistance to guide replication of their strategies in other communities. The objectives for the 1996-1997 Models That Work Campaign include the following: (1) announce the competition to 5,000 organizations, select winners, and hold a symposium with a teleconference and full media coverage, and continually share the new lessons learned; (2) inform federal and state policy decision makers on five innovative yet successful ways to use limited funding in support of optimal health through disease/injury prevention, education, employment, housing, and health/social services; (3) provide detailed examples of primary care Models That Work to 10,000 community leaders, health professionals, public and private organizations, and elected officials; and (4) participate in the replication or transfer of model programs identified during the campaign to ten underserved communities. A $10,000 grant was awarded in March 1990 to provide funding for a Second HRSA Primary Care Conference.
