CASBHC has been awarded $108,267 (15 months) from CT Health Foundation for the 2nd cohort of SBHCs participating in the CT SBHC Quality Initiative. This grant will allow the association to continue its work helping school-based health centers collect, report, and track their performance on quality measures. It will expand this project to four additional organizations that operate 10 school-based health centers: Branford Public Schools, Stratford Health Department, Optimus Health Care in Bridgeport, and Child and Family Agency in Southeastern Connecticut.
