MDH Funding Opportunities
Minnesota Accountable Health Model e-Health Grant Program
The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) requests proposals for the Minnesota Accountable Health Model e-Health Grant Program. The grants are intended to support readiness to advance the Minnesota Accountable Health Model and to prepare for potential participation in accountable communities for health.

Minnesota Accountable Health Model: Continuum of Accountability Matrix Assessment Tool
A requirement for the Grant RFP listed above is completion of the Minnesota Accountable Health Model: Continuum of Accountability Matrix Assessment Tool (Word 112KB/ 20pg).
This tool is an interactive tool that allows organizations to answer questions to determine their location on the Minnesota Accountable Health Model: Continuum of Accountability Matrix. The Minnesota Department of Health and Minnesota Department of Human Services will use this tool to better understand the grant participants and their status in achieving the goals of the Minnesota Accountable Health Model, what supports are needed to achieve the goals, and how we may be able to provide additional tools or resources. This tool will be used to help us develop targets and goals for participating organizations, and to assess their progress.
