HCWB Program

January 5, 2023

As you may recall, in November DoH announced that it would expand the worker titles and qualified employers that are eligible to apply for funds through the Health Care Workforce Bonus Program, to include DoH funded Health Homes and DoH-funded Permanent Supportive Housing Agencies.  I checked in with DoH leads recently and was advised that the DoH target date for opening the portal is February 1, with a one month submission period.   DoH is preparing a notice for stakeholders to include FAQs, to be released as soon as possible.
