The Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust (Health Trust) announced the release of its 2018-2019 Request for Letters of Intent (LOIs) for organizations striving to promote good health, prevent disease, and address the healthcare needs of Pajaro Valley residents.
The Health Trust’s current five-year strategic plan, through 2020, outlines a commitment to funding and advocacy in four strategic priority areas: Access to Care; Diabetes and its Contributing Risk Factors; Health Professions; and Oral Health. The Health Trust prioritizes investment in programs and projects that serve the following populations: children and youth (newborn–age 21); farmworkers and their families; and low-income, underserved and undocumented individuals.
With this year’s grant making cycle, the Health Trust plans to award $215,000 to the most promising projects proposed in its competitive grant application process. Grants will be awarded to organizations whose efforts advance the Health Trust’s mission — to improve health and quality of life for residents of the Pajaro Valley — and the goals outlined in its 2015-2020 strategic plan.
