This program evaluation from Community Catalyst’s Center for Consumer Engagement in Health Innovation describes the year one results from Community Catalyst’s Consumer Voices for Innovation grant program. The program funded 6 state health advocacy organizations to catalyze grassroots organizing and base building in health system transformation, focusing on consumers who have presented particular challenges for engagement: people from low-income communities, people of color, and/or older adults.

Positive outcomes in the evaluation include increased consumer participation, commitment, leadership, and empowerment as well as increased consumer engagement with decision makers and influence on local and state policy.
