Statewide DSRIP Community Engagement Forum

MMNY’s work related to DSRIP has focused on community engagement, how community-based organizations are involved at the local level, and what we can do to enhance engagement statewide.  MMNY hosted this opportunity for CBOs from across the state to come together to share what we have learned, discuss policy recommendations, and strategize on how to reach our goals.
