Local Indigent Care Needs

In light of COVID-19, the CMSP Governing Board has postponed the release of Round 2 for the Local Indigent Care Needs Grant to later this year. Please see the COVID-19 Emergency Response Grant for COVID-19 related funding available for CMSP counties.

If you are a CMSP-contracted Community Health Center (FQHC, RHC, and Tribal Health Providers), funding is available through the CMSP COVID-19 Bridge Loan Program for organizations experiencing cash flow difficulties resulting from the pandemic.
