The California Health Facilities Financing Authority Accepting Applications for Small and Rural Health Facilities Adversely Affected by Reductions in Federal Funding.
The California Health Facilities Financing Authority is accepting applications for the Clinic Lifeline Grant Program. The program assists small and rural health facilities, including community-based clinics, that may be adversely affected financially by a reduction or elimination of federal government assistance and that have little to no access to working capital. The support may be used to support core operations as the facility develops plans to deal with a loss of federal government assistance. Each applicant must explain the “Federal Trigger”, which is any federal executive, administrative or legislative action or inaction that impacts any reimbursement or eligibility for participation in any federal program or initiative. A health facility cannot apply until a Federal Trigger has occurred.
