Case Study Sector
As part of its commitment to increasing access to high quality and affordable health care for underserved Californians, the California Endowment provided multiyear funding for the Clinic Consortia Policy and Advocacy Program. In early 2001, fifteen California regional community clinic associations and four statewide clinic organizations received three years of funding (totaling $10 million) to strengthen the role and capacity of consortia in order to support the management, leadership development, policy, and system integration needs of community clinics.
The purpose of this summary is to describe the evaluation results of the second funding cycle of the Clinic Consortia Policy and Advocacy Program for the years 2004-2006. The evaluation focuses on the program outcomes by the grantee population as a whole, particularly the benefits of program-funded activities to clinics and their target populations.
