The California Health and Human Services (CHHS) Center for Data Insights and Innovation (CDII) has allocated up to $47 million for the Data Sharing Agreement (DSA) Signatory Grant Program, which will provide direct support to health care entities as they implement the Data Exchange Framework (DxF). There will be two grant options—onboarding grants and technical assistance grants. The program is expected to open for applications in May 2023.
CDII is hosting a two-hour town hall on May 16, 2023, at 10 a.m. to provide an overview on the grant program, including details on program requirements, the application process and how to use the DSA Signatory Grants Portal.
The DSA Signatory Grant Applicant Guidance Document provides a comprehensive overview of the DSA Signatory Grants. Participants are encouraged to review this document in advance of the session and submit any questions through the registration page. Participants will have opportunities to ask questions during the event.
