Open Requests for Proposals

Linkage Lab Academy RFP

The SCAN Foundation invites the submission of proposals from eligible organizations that provide services in California’s eight Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI) counties, to participate in the second cohort of the Linkage Lab Academy. The passage of the CCI in California marked an important step toward transforming California's Medi-Cal delivery system to better serve the state’s low-income seniors and persons with disabilities.  The CCI aims to improve care coordination for dual (Medicare and Medi-Cal) eligible beneficiaries and drive high quality care that helps people stay healthy and in their homes for as long as possible.  Additionally, shifting services from institutional settings to the home and community will help create a person-centered health care system that is cost-effective.  The goal of the Linkage Lab Academy is to build the business acumen of community-based organizations, thereby enabling them to enter into contractual relationships with the health care sector.

Organizations planning to submit a proposal under this Linkage Lab Academy RFP must submit an email expressing their intent to apply, to Erin Westphal (, Program Officer, by August 29, 2014.  The email should include the organization's name, geographic location, and contact information (phone and email) for the potential project lead.

Proposals are due by September 18, 2014 at 2:00 pm (PDST)
