Capacity Building Assistance

The Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) team helps Federally Qualified Health Centers and other healthcare organizations across the country successfully plan, implement, and evaluate their own new or existing Community Health Worker (CHW) programs.

The CBA team helps organizations implement CHW programs to better support their
communities and improve reach and quality of services.

Our Capacity-Building Assistance (CBA) team assists organizations in starting or strengthening Community Health Worker programs at Community Health Centers across the country through education and technical assistance. With over 35 years of experience working with Community Health Worker, MHP Salud is uniquely qualified to help organizations build on their strengths and address their challenges. The guidance and training MHP Salud provides ensures that organizations implementing CHW programs are using the model effectively and sustainably, to increase access to care and address social determinants of health in their patient populations. The CBA program has run for over twenty years.

Technical assistance can be tailored specifically to the needs of the recipient organization and its Community Health Workers or program staff. For example, our services can be easily adjusted based on the literacy level or technological competency and can be provided in English or Spanish. Although most of MHP Salud’s programs focus on Latino and Hispanic populations, our Capacity Building Assistance team works with organizations serving a variety of populations across the nation. The team is actively engaged in ensuring evidence-based, collaborative technical assistance is made available to all health centers through partnerships with the National Association of Community Health Centers, the Farmworkers Health Network, and the National Cooperative Agreement Advisory Group, among others.

The CBA Team holds COVID-19 and CHWs Virtual Technical Assistance calls on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 3 pm EST. Learn more here.

CBA distributes a variety of newsletters and resources that focus on all things CHWs and the CHW profession. View the latest edition of La Esperanza, our CHW Newsletter here.
