Care Compass Network has awarded over $8.2 million to 23 different organizations across 4 rounds of the Innovation Fund program. All proposals that were submitted during each of the 4 rounds of the program were scored by an independent evaluator, not associated with Care Compass Network.

Regional Performance Unit (RPU) Support Funds

The Regional Performance Unit (RPU) Support Funds are intended to serve as alternative funding for activities which do not fall within the scope of one of Care Compass Network’s (CCN’s) contracted projects, but will still further greater integration of the delivery system. These activities may address social determinants of health (e.g., economic instability, housing, transportation, early childhood education, access to primary care, access to affordable, healthy food, etc.) or support collaborations to improve service delivery efficiencies within the RPU.

All Care Compass Network Partners, located in our 9-county region, are eligible to apply for RPU Support Funds.  A CCN Partner is defined as an organization that has the following agreements in place with CCN: 1) executed Partner Agreement and 2) executed Business Associate Agreement (BAA).  Partners who have these agreements in place but are not currently contracted for projects are still eligible to apply.
