This policy brief from the Penn Center for Community Health Workers, home of the IMPaCT community health worker (CHW) model, was developed from a workshop presentation at Putting Care at the Center 2018.

The brief highlights financing and policy strategies – including value-based payments, program accreditation, and incentives to implement solutions correlated with high-quality programs – that can help state and federal policymakers optimize the use of the CHW workforce to better care for individuals with complex health and social needs.
