Each year, Sequoia Healthcare District provides grants through our Caring Community Grants Program that usually range from $10,000- $100,000 to non-profits that offer health services to District residents. Annually, about 30 grants are awarded with an average amount of $50,000.
The Sequoia Healthcare District Board of Directors approves funding priorities based on current and projected community health needs and variable funding resources. A Grants Review Committee consisting of local leaders knowledgeable in areas of community health read all applications and make recommendations for funding. This is a competitive process and all awards are for one year. Grantees are required to make mid-year and end-of-year reports detailing how they used funds to positively impact the health of District residents. Most years these grants serve collectively more than 60,000 residents.
