Dear CNYCC Valued Partners,
I am writing to provide you an update to ensure we keep the line of communication open. We just received word from DOH that CMS has communicated to NYS leadership that part of New York’s DSRIP funding related to the extension and renewal request has been rejected. Governor Cuomo held a press conference this afternoon and there have been several conflicting reports on twitter, media, and other sources – we will make sure to share facts as they become available.
We are in close contact with DOH leadership assessing the situation. DOH staff has indicated to PPSs that they plan to challenge this federal action and the situation is evolving. While we are still waiting for more information, we do know that the DOH remains committed to DSRIP and its PPS partners.
We will be sharing information transparently with our staff, board and our partners as we receive it.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact me with questions.
Executive Director - Interim
