"The Accountable Health Communities (AHC) model addresses a gap in the current delivery system by funding interventions that connect community-dwelling beneficiaries with community services. The AHC model will test three community-focused interventions of varying intensity and their ability to impact total health care costs and inpatient and outpatient health care utilization. This model will engage community-dwelling Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries of all ages (children and adults). CMS will award, through a competitive process, renewable one-year cooperative agreements to successful applicants (award recipients)."

Funder: Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)
Eligibility: "CMS invites community-based organizations, individual and group healthcare practices, hospitals and health systems, institutions of higher education (IHE), local government entities, tribal organizations and for-profit and not-for-profit local and national entities with the capacity to develop and maintain relationships with clinical delivery sites and community service providers to apply."
