2016 THEME: “Improving the Quality & Access to Care for Individuals Living with Mental Illness” – Deadline March 14, 2016

Pioneer Institute’s Better Government Competition is a citizens’ ideas contest that seeks out and rewards innovative solutions to public sector problems, with different focus areas each year. The Competition grand prize winner receives $10,000; four runners-up receive $1,000 each, and other proposals receive special recognition. The 2016 competition seeks proposals to improve quality and access to care for individuals living with mental illness through unique approaches to insurance, health care, human services and partnerships between government agencies and mental health care providers. Competitive submissions will cite examples of similar approaches that are currently in place; discuss the costs and benefits of your approach compared to current practice; and note potential obstacles to implementation. Submissions could also address the potential for replication in Massachusetts, but this is not required.
