CMSP Local Indigent Care Needs (LICN) Grants Request for Proposals

July 8, 2021

The County Medical Services Program (CMSP) Governing Board has released its Request for Proposals (RFP) for the CMSP Local Indigent Care Needs (LICN) Grant Program for CMSP counties that have not already received funding. The RFP and all associated documents have been posted on the CMSP Governing Board’s website here.

The LICN Program will award one-time funding of up to $50,000 per project (up to $75,000 for multi-county projects) to counties for Planning Project Grants. For Implementation Program Grants, the LICN Program will award up to $500,000 per year for a three-year period. Efforts funded by the LICN Program must target persons uninsured or underinsured within one of the 16 CMSP eligible counties. The Lead Agency applicant must be either a CMSP county or a not-for-profit organization.

LICN Grants may support county-specific or multi-county efforts to:

  • Promote timely delivery of necessary medical, behavioral health and support services to locally identified target populations.
  • Link these populations to other community resources and support; and
  • Improve overall health outcomes.

Proposals will be accepted starting September 1, 2021. Proposals must be received by the CMSP Governing Office no later than Thursday, September 30, 2021 at 3:00 PM.

To assist potential applicants with the RFP process, Governing Board staff will conduct four webinars. Applicants are encouraged to attend at webinars.
