For over 25 years, the Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS) has received support from national foundations, federal and state agencies, and other philanthropies. CHCS was founded in 1995 with a major grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to respond to the dramatic expansion of managed care in Medicaid. Our initial efforts focused on identifying and demonstrating best practices in Medicaid managed care.

Since its founding, CHCS has been devoted to delivering practical training and technical assistance to help state and federal agencies, health plans, providers, community-based organizations, and consumers improve health care delivery and outcomes for people served by Medicaid. Our national initiatives have progressed from health plan and state efforts focused on single diseases to multi-stakeholder, cross-sector collaboratives that address complex and often systemic challenges. CHCS’ work informs state and national policy and supports Medicaid stakeholders in advancing health equity and achieving better outcomes for millions of people across the country.

Today, CHCS receives generous support from a broad array of national foundations, federal and state agencies, and corporate philanthropies committed to more effective, efficient, and equitable care for Medicaid enrollees. Following is a select list of our funders:
