Project Title:

Funding Sustainability

Project Description:   

LifeWorks will use the Catalyst Grant to help solve a critical funding and sustainability issue for their mental health services. 


They are looking to transition or hybridize their current grants-based funding model to maximize Medicaid and insurance billing potential due to the recent changes in health insurance.

Grant Status:   

The Catalyst Grant paid for a consultant to analyze LifeWorks’ business model and funding structure so as to maximize support from Medicaid and insurance. 


The process expanded the organization’s knowledge and technical expertise with billing proficiencies. The goal would be to expand their counseling program to more people in the community. Impact Austin requested LifeWorks share their findings with their mental health partners in the community.
