Kaiser Permanente awards nearly $1.5 million to Sacramento-area nonprofit organizations

Kaiser Permanente awards nearly $1.5 million to Sacramento-area nonprofit organizations

Kaiser Permanente in Greater Sacramento has awarded 56 grants totaling nearly $1.5 million to 54 local not-for-profit organizations, schools and government entities. The grants seek to improve access to medical care, support mental health services, reduce violence, develop the workforce and promote healthy eating and active living.

The Community Benefit grants – which range in individual amounts from $5,000 to $97,304 – are part of a longstanding practice for Kaiser Permanente, the region’s leading integrated health-care provider, which works to improve the health of the communities it serves in Sacramento, Yolo, Placer and El Dorado counties.

The largest allocation of funding will help the uninsured and underinsured access health care programs and services at various community clinics and organizations.

But other grants help to improve overall community health, especially access to healthy food.
