The Administration for Community Living (ACL) has released new resources from the Business Acumen Initiative to provide background on this work and to feature case studies from community-based organizations (CBOs) that highlight their activities to secure contracts and develop relationships with partner organizations. Launched in 2012, this program aims to strengthen the aging and disability networks from the inside, building their business skills and enhancing their effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability.
The case study here describes how Healthy Aging Regional Collaborative, a regional interagency collaborative of the Aging and Disability Resource Center and the Area Agencies on Aging in South Florida, transformed into the Florida Health Networks (FHN).
Check out this resource to learn about the steps FHN took to create its statewide network.
