Community Partnership Grants

Population Health - Community Partnership Grant Program

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.

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.
