Kaiser Permanente Santa Clarita Valley is accepting community grant applications for 2017 starting Wednesday, February 15 through 2 p.m. on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.
Kaiser Permanente’s social mission is to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve. The Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit Program addresses the needs and priorities identified through local needs assessments.
To see the 2016 Panorama City Community Health Needs Assessment which includes the Santa Clarita Valley area please visit: https://share.kaiserpermanente.org/article/community-health-needs-assessments/
Addressing these needs is accomplished, in part, by supporting partnerships with community-based organizations through our community grants program.
Kaiser Permanente Panorama City Medical Center Area’s Community Benefit Grant Program provides opportunities to respond to grant requests from nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies whose work aligns with our key funding priorities in the Santa Clarita Valley area.
A limited number of grants will be awarded to organizations that address critical needs in at least one of the following five areas of focus:
- Access to Health Care
· Economic Security
· Mental and Behavioral Health

· Provide services within the Santa Clarita Valley
· Provide services to disadvantaged and/or underserved populations
· Address critical public health needs in our culturally diverse community
