Community Engagement Learning Collaborative

In June 2018, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced the Community Engagement Learning Collaborative (CELC). The CELC’s goal is to support states interested in implementing community engagement demonstrations and to share information, resources, practices, and lessons learned across states. 

CMS works with states to:

  • Identify areas that require policy clarification or operational support
  • Conduct interviews with states and other stakeholders to better understand challenges
  • Identify strategies, lessons learned and best practices for states
  • Convene virtual and in-person meetings to review key insights, provide forums for state-to-state and state-to-CMS dialogue, and solicit state feedback
