BIP Funding Opportunity
The New York State Department of Health has issued a Request for Applications for the Balancing Incentive Program (BIP). The BIP Innovation Fund is designed to engage New York's broad network of providers, advocates, and community leaders in developing systemic improvements that address barriers encountered when providing community-based long term supports and services (LTSS) across all populations of Medicaid beneficiaries in the State. Up to $45 million in Innovation Fund Grants will be available. The BIP Innovation Fund will promote provider expertise by offering eligible entities the opportunity to create solutions that impact the LTSS delivery systems.
