Completed Projects

G2L Database Development

Posted Fri, February 20, 2015

Grantee: Global to Local
Timeframe: January 2015-December 2015 | Amount: $37,000

Global to Local will use PHPDA’s grant to identify, purchase, install and implement a database across all programs of the organization. This will allow G2L to identify strategies that are effective so that they can be scaled up in places beyond SeaTac and Tukwila. Since G2L does not currently have a standardized database, each project has developed its own method for tracking data. This makeshift approach to data management has made it difficult for G2L to obtain real-time information on its activities and clients. The database project will provide information from which G2L can devote the majority of its energy to those efforts that will have the greatest impact for the community in a timely manner.

The Q Card: Empowering Queer Youth in Healthcare

Posted Fri, February 20, 2015

Grantee: The Q Card Project
Timeframe: January 2015-December 2015 | Amount: $14,600

Funding from the PHPDA will support a portion of the FTE for the Q Card Project Lead to offer trainings to local youth and providers, scale up distribution efforts, oversee a formal evaluation, conduct ongoing research, and prepare a manuscript for submission to peer-reviewed journals. To improve access to Q Cards themselves, funding will also support the production (including translation, design, and printing) of Q Cards in Spanish and at least one additional language. To determine which language is most appropriate, the Project Lead will work with local queer youth organizations to assess need.

Electronic Health Records Implementation

Posted Fri, February 20, 2015

Grantee: Boyer Children’s Clinic
Timeframe: January 2015-December 2015 | Amount: $35,000

Boyer Children’s Clinic will use PHPDA funds to strengthen its infrastructure and capacity in order to continue meeting the early intervention needs of King County children and families and to specifically address the barriers described above. Through the integration of an Electronic Health Records (EHR) technology infrastructure enhancement, Boyer will increase access to healthcare resources for families, strengthen services coordination to expand the quality of care, and improve efficiencies across the agency.

Infrastructure and Capacity Building Initiative

Posted Fri, February 20, 2015

Grantee: Somali Health Board
Timeframe: January 2015-December 2015 | Amount: $28,540

Somali Health Board currently does not have the organizational capacity to grow and expand. Their Infrastructure and Capacity Building Initiative seeks to better meet the objectives and goals of the organization. SHB will utilize these funds in four main areas: (1) hiring of 0.25 Program Coordinator, responsible for administrative oversight of the agency, (2) rental of office space, (3) purchase of office and communications equipment, and (4) filing fees for 501(c) 3 status.
