CHCANYS Public Health AmeriCorps
CHCANYS Public Health AmeriCorps is a workforce development program dedicated to assisting community health centers in addressing COVID-19 response and other health care needs in their communities. Members perform a full year of service (1700 hours, 10-11 months) at community health centers, where they work to improve and expand the delivery of services at their sites. Our program prepares its members for careers in community-based primary health care. Members perform direct service with patients thereby filling service gaps, increasing access to and improving utilization of health center’s services. The mission of CHCANYS AmeriCorps is to assure the provision of culturally appropriate preventive and primary health care to medically under-served populations and communities with a focus on connecting patients to health education and treatment. Health centers diagnose and treat budding health problems early, prevent unnecessary utilization of hospital emergency rooms and inpatient beds, and help cut health care costs. CHCANYS Public Health AmeriCorps consists of 101 members working full time in various community health centers across New York State, including NYC. Each member works on a service project that reflect the needs of their health center, the community where it is based, and the objectives of the Public Health AmeriCorps, with a focus on COVID-19 pandemic response. CHCANYS Public Health AmeriCorps members receive a Living Allowance of $27,000, in addition to other benefits including transportation expenses and health insurance. Members also receive extensive Public Health training and professional development and an Education Award of $6,895 at the successful completion of their term.
