The Pathways Community HUB Model has been endorsed by several federal agencies such as: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services, Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Health Resources and Services Administration, National Institute of Medicine and others.
The Kresge Foundation funded the creation of the Pathways HUB Certification Process. All Commission funded grantees must be certified and/or maintain certification to retain funding.
