Cooperative agreements to USA private and public nonprofit entities, including government agencies, Tribal governments and organizations, and IHEs to align health and social services with social determinants of health. Required registrations may take several days to complete.

The intent of these awards is to provide funding directly to community-based organizations (CBOs) serving as a Network Lead Entity to develop Community Integrated Health Networks that contract with health care sector entities (e.g., accountable care organizations, health plans, managed care organizations, hospitals, health systems, and more) for coordinated access and delivery of services that address social determinant of health.This funding opportunity aims to support Network Lead Entities (NLEs) that are part of ACL's aging and disability network and are performing access functions as part of a broader No Wrong Door (NWD) System. Through a Cooperative Agreement, ACL will support NLEs with innovation grants to improve their access functions and support infrastructure costs associated with aligning health care and social services to address social determinants of health (SDoH) for all populations. A NLE is an organization that helps to create a community integrated health network (CIHN) at the regional, statewide, or multistate level. The NLE directs the development and design of a network structure and facilitates services, administrative oversight, and governance responsibilities.
