Alliance Membership

Membership in the Alliance of Community Service Providers:

There are two types of members of the Alliance of Community Service Providers: direct service providers (full members) and Associate members. Dues for full members for 2013-2015 are set on a sliding scale based on their annual revenues. Revenue sources include: ODP PROMISE payments related to the Philadelphia individuals or Philadelphia locations for the services listed above, Philadelphia County contract dollars from IDS, OAS, & OMH; BHSI payments, and CBH reimbursements for public clients. No other funding streams apply to the Alliance Annual Dues calculation.
