Funding Priorities

Eligible organizations include nonprofits, government-sponsored health programs, school districts, community service agencies, safety net clinics and community coalitions with a history of service to the residents of our community. To qualify for funding, programs must address an identified health need within one of the following five funding priorities in the 2022 Community Health needs Assessment (CHNA):

  • Healthcare Access & Delivery (including oral health)
  • Behavioral Health (including domestic violence & trauma)
  • Diabetes & Obesity
  • Chronic Conditions (other than diabetes & obesity)
  • Economic Stability (including food insecurity, housing & homelessness)

The CHNA is conducted every three years by El Camino Health in collaboration with other local health systems. Please refer to the 2022 CHNA for more information.
