Yolo County Community Grant Funding Requirements
At Woodland Healthcare we are looking to partner with other nonprofit organizations whose programs respond to the strategic priorities identified in our Community Health Assessments or Community Benefit Plans. Grant funds are to be used to provide services to underserved populations.
The depth of the recession has devastated the public healthcare safety-net. Budget reductions have stretched the areas’ primary, mental and public health services to the limit and placed thousands of low-income and vulnerable residents at risk.
The 2012 Dignity Health Community Grants Program is structured to strengthen our region's healthcare safety-net.
2012 Grant proposals for Yolo County must address the following priorities:
- Initiative that provide access to primary, mental and specialty (i.e. dental, women, children and elderly) care for uninsured, underinsured and undocumented immigrants and vulnerable populations
- Providing wraparound care and services, including transitional and permanent housing for the homeless; substance abuse treatment; mental health services; case management and referral support; transportation; and other complementary programs to underserved populations
- Grant funds are awarded up to $10,000
- Applicants must strictly adhere to the grant guidelines
- Proposals must identify the type of change expected and how, and over what time period, progress will be measured
