Overview

Pacific Hospital Preservation & Development Authority: Bridging gaps in health care access

 

Major Grant Opportunities

Agencies can apply for grants ranging from a minimum of $50,000 to a maximum of $200,000. The 2017 Major Grant Application and Guidance are available on the Applying for Major Grants page.

Organizations that are interested in applying for grants under $30,000 should consider applying for a Nimble Fund Grant.

 

Funding Priorities

The Pacific Hospital PDA has adopted the following funding priorities:

  • Projects that address cultural, linguistic, economic, and other access barriers to successful utilization of medical and other services, including projects that improve health literacy among the populations to be served.

  • Projects that focus on ensuring access for underserved eligible populations and communities to health resources and services provided by the Affordable Care Act.

  • Projects that provide services and/or increase access to services among populations and communities who are not eligible to receive services under the Affordable Care Act.

  • Projects that provide services that are not covered, in part or fully, under the Affordable Care Act.

Although applications are not limited to the following focus areas, strong consideration will be given to projects that address one or more of the following:

  • Provide health-related services and improve health access and outcomes for African-Americans

  • Provide health-related services and improve health access and outcomes for South King County residents

  • Provide health-related services and improve health access and outcomes for people experiencing homelessness and/or housing instability

  • Incorporate advocacy efforts to implement institutional change related to health.

Pacific Hospital PDA does not fund capital projects. However, we will consider smaller, necessary capital items (i.e. computer equipment) as part of a larger project budget on a case-by-case basis.

Pacific Hospital PDA funds cannot be used for lobbying.

 

Funding Principles

Pacific Hospital PDA is responsible for ensuring that funding is allocated to organizations that adhere to the Pacific Hospital PDA’s mission and goals. To that end, projects funded under this application should adhere to the following fundamental Pacific Hospital PDA principles:

  • Address the needs of underserved populations with particular emphasis on decreasing health disparities among communities of color;

  • Ensure access to existing and emerging health care resources for persons who might otherwise be overlooked or neglected by the health care system;

  • Adapt to changes in the health care delivery system and fill gaps in care; and

  • Document outcomes and ensure that evaluation mechanisms are in place to assess the effect of project resources in a manner that is measurable and feasible within the context of the grant.
