Community Oriented Recovery and Empowerment (CORE) Services

Implementing CORE Services: Toolkit & Financial Calculator

The ability to convey the value of CORE services to both care recipients and other community-based providers is essential for developing and maintaining a sustainable CORE business model. On a programmatic level, CORE managers and supervisors need to develop strategies for marketing services and building a referral network. On a direct service level, CORE providers need to have a solid understanding of CORE eligibility and services in order to match and bundle services with the recipient’s needs and preferences.

MCTAC in partnership with NYAPRS and CCSI is pleased to offer the CORE Implementation Training Series. This multimodal training series will equip CORE designated providers of all levels with the tools and guidance needed to successfully implement CORE Services. Learn more about each offering below!
