God’s Love We Deliver cultivates policy solutions to ensure we are reaching those who need us most. Solutions include developing and publishing informative policy briefs and toolkits, advocating for access for our vulnerable clients and working with healthcare partners to identify and refer clients for our services. You can explore our innovation programs and projects below.
The Balancing Incentives Program provides states with financial incentives to increase access to non-institutional long-term services and supports (LTSS) and our project received recognition by the New York State Department of Health. Through our project we were able to expand our service area to Nassau and Westchester Counties for our Community Partners Program and created a referral tool to help care managers identify those who are most at risk for malnutrition.
