The Tri-City Healthcare District is accepting grant applications from nonprofit agencies serving residents of Carlsbad, Oceanside, and Vista.
As it did last year, the district will award grants totaling $300,000. Excluded from consideration are other hospitals, hospital districts, and government agencies.
The grant requests must be for projects that promote the health and well-being of residents in the district, and that speak to the priorities identified by the Community Healthcare Alliance Committee, a committee of the Tri-City Healthcare District’s Board of Directors. Those priorities include reducing obesity, preventing diabetes and heart disease and managing and understanding mental health.
Up to $100,000 of the $300,000 will be awarded to one or more projects that collaborate with Tri-City Medical Center to encourage innovative programs or new approaches that leverage existing networks and resources in creative ways.
Completed applications are due no later than March 30 and may be emailed to CHAC@tcmc.com or mailed to Tri-City Medical Center, TCHD Community Healthcare Alliance Committee, Public Affairs and Marketing Department, ATTN: Susan Paparella, 2095 W. Vista Way, Suite 214, Vista, CA 92083. Email questions to CHAC@tcmc.com.
Grants will be awarded at the June 28 Tri-City Board Meeting.
