2014 In Focus: Health Care Reform

Signed into law in 2010, the staged implementation of the Affordable Care Act is rapidly impacting communities that we serve. Recognizing the need to understand—and quickly adapt—SCG members will meet quarterly throughout the year to hear from experts about pressing changes and exchange ideas about how funders can respond and prioritize emerging needs. 

What participants are saying about In Focus: Health Care

"This series of meetings is tremendously helpful. It is keeping our staff informed and competent during a time of great turmoil in healthcare. As a result, not only have we been able to hold our healthcare funding steady throughout the changes, we are actually making better and more appropriate grants."
