In 2008, The Colorado Trust launched a grant strategy designed to better integrate local health practitioners and health care services into the existing efforts of Early Childhood Councils. This ongoing effort sought to integrate local systems of care in order to meet the health care needs of children. However, to effectively realize such a vision required deliberate, smart planning. This case study, conducted by the Center for Systems Integration, discusses the successes, challenges and lessons learned from the planning grant process, including a set of key recommendations for funders to consider.
