SHARE Initiative (Supporting Health for All through Reinvestment)

IHN-CCO invites interested parties in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties to submit proposals that support housing and/or increases the number of medical respite beds in the region. The approved proposal projects will receive funding through the SHARE Initiative January to December 2023. 

SHARE is a way IHN-CCO supports social determinants of health projects and programs in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties. SHARE is a new funding mechanism (started in 2021) with specific criteria from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and must fall into the categories of economic stability, education, neighborhood and built environment, and social and community health. IHN-CCO may narrow the scope beyond the contractual requirements.
