Mark Luckner is the Executive Director of the Maryland Community Health Resources Commission (CHRC), a position he has held since 2009. The Commission was created to help bolster Maryland’s safety net infrastructure and expand access to affordable, high-quality health care for underserved communities. The CHRC has awarded 115 grants totaling $29.7 million, supporting programs in all 24 jurisdictions of the state. The programs have provided health care services for approximately 110,000 Marylanders and enabled programs to leverage $10 million in additional federal and non-profit resources. In addition to these grant-making activities, the CHRC works with the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DHMH) to implement the Health Enterprise Zones Initiative, supports the State Health Improvement Process by awarding grants to Local Health Improvement Coalitions, and works with DHMH and others to help expand capacity and promote readiness of the safety net provider community as Maryland implements the Affordable Care Act. Prior to joining the CHRC, Mr. Luckner served as senior policy advisor on health care, human services, and public safety issues for Governor Martin O’Malley’s StateStat program and worked in the Maryland House of Delegates for eight years, including six years as chief-of-staff to the Health and Government Operations Committee.
