Community Health Improvement Grants


We can't change the world by ourselves. Partnering with others who share our vision and values is the only way to bring about real improvements in the healthcare system. Our Community Health Improvement Grants program is one way we are working with others to increase access to quality care. Organizations that receive grant funds from us are working to improve access to healthcare services for people in low-income and minority communities. Since 1991 Dignity Health has made 3,700 grant awards totaling $86 million.

Program Overview

Dignity Health’s Community Health Improvement Grants program continues to focus on collaboration with an emphasis on responding to significant health needs identified in the Community Health Needs Assessment. The goal of the program is to develop strategic partnerships between community-based organizations that link services directly to Dignity Health hospitals in Sacramento, Yolo and Nevada counties, leveraging resources that address priority health issues and utilizing creative strategies that have a direct, positive and lasting impact on the health of disadvantaged individuals and families.
