NYSHealth’s Special Projects Fund (SPF) continues to support unique projects that are consistent with the Foundation’s mission to improve the health of all New Yorkers, especially the most vulnerable, but fall outside the Foundation’s priority areas. NYSHealth awards SPF funds to support a diverse set of initiatives across the State, including projects that help low-income and elderly consumers understand and navigate the health system; improve access to health care in service areas with acute shortages; support and strengthen safety net providers to reach more people; and address statewide health system issues that could improve the efficiency or effectiveness of the system.
