Funding Priorities
The El Camino Healthcare District's Community Benefit Program has identified three key funding priorities:

  • Healthy Body
  • Healthy Mind
  • Healthy Community

Criteria for Selecting Programs
Programs must address an unmet health need and align with one of the funding priorities listed above. Grantee organizations must be a nonprofit, government-sponsored health program, school district, or community coalition with a history of service to the community. Programs should be effective, open to collaboration, efficient, and capable of demonstrating measurable success.

Review Process
Community Benefit staff review and recommend potential grants to determine which are best suited to impact unmet health needs. The staff review each potential grantee's service, measurement systems, personnel, and budgets. Recommendations are then evaluated by the Community Benefit Advisory Council, which consists of individuals representing the El Camino Healthcare District Board of Directors, public health, schools, community service agencies, and physicians. The El Camino Healthcare District Board of Directors reviews the annual cohort of recommended grants based upon documented needs, best practices, and projected volume and impact metrics, and votes to approve the annual Community Benefit Plan.
