NYC Care Program Teams Up With Community Orgs To Enhance Health Access

NYC Health + Hospitals’ NYC Care program has announced its partnership with 22 community-based organizations (CBOs) from Harlem to Hollis, Queens.

These organizations are selected to expand outreach, education, and enrollment services for NYC Care, enhancing health access for New Yorkers in underserved areas.

The chosen CBOs, spanning all five boroughs, have a strong history of serving priority zip codes with high rates of uninsured residents and low NYC Care enrollment.

With staff fluent in over 30 languages and deeply rooted in their communities, these organizations act as trusted messengers, facilitating vital connections to healthcare services.

Most of the selected CBOs offer multi-service programs, addressing various community needs such as civic engagement, housing, homelessness, and food security.

They are committed to a three-year contract term with two one-year renewal options, ensuring sustained support for NYC Care’s mission.
