Peer Supporters CMS Funding
Peer Supporters Play Prominent Role in Recent CMS Innovation Funding
After our previous blog discussing community health workers in the US workforce and efforts to demonstrate their value to the healthcare system, this round of funding demonstrates the government’s interest in increasing the role of community health workers and peers supporters in the health system. To read about the other award winners please check out http://innovations.cms.gov/initiatives/Innovation-Awards/Project-Profiles.html. The next round of recipients will be announced in June and we will look forward to seeing additional ways for peer supporters and community health workers to be incorporated into improving health across the nation.
