For more than 20 years, Cottage Health has been providing grants to community-based organizations, totaling more than $10 million in funding to improve the health of our community.
The Community Partnership Grants program is committed to funding efforts that will address community needs through evidence-based interventions.
The 2017-2018 Community Partnership Grants will mark a shift in this grants program toward an initiative-based approach. This shift is intended to lead toward a collective impact approach by inspiring a spirit of deeper collaboration among community organizations and creating alignment of efforts toward addressing shared goals and outcomes.
Cottage Health is currently accepting proposals for the grant period of October 1, 2017- December 31, 2018. These grants will have an initiative-level focus on behavioral health, which was identified as a top five priority area in Cottage Health’s 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment and Listening Tour.
Additionally, results from an environmental scan of Santa Barbara County’s health and health-related nonprofits revealed opportunities to support organizations in increasing access and addressing barriers to utilizing behavioral health services, which include mental health and substance abuse.
