Look­ing to Start Centering?

Open Oppor­tu­ni­ties for In-Kind Ser­vice Awards

The Centering Healthcare Institute (CHI) has launched an aggressive plan to expand access to the Centering model of group healthcare in communities where group care can have the greatest impact.

We understand the challenges faced by practices when starting and establishing a Centering practice and recognize that availability of funds is often a common obstacle confronted by sites. To help offset some of the financial barriers, CHI offers a number of in-kind service awards comprised of customized implementation support and facilitation training packages to sites interested in starting Centering. These awards are categorized by criteria, Centering model and geography.

See our complete list of open opportunities below to apply. Please note these are not monetary awards, but the awarding of in-kind services. A site can apply to only one program and these awards cannot be combined.
