The Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit Grants Program in southern Alameda County is now soliciting and accepting grant applications for 2008.
Community organizations, public health entities and public schools are encouraged to apply for these health grants. Applications will be considered from organizations which fall within the southern Alameda County area and meet at least one or more funding priority areas.
The 2008 Kaiser Permanente funding priorities are to: 1) reduce rates of obesity in children and adults; 2) improve prevention and management of diabetes and cardiovascular disease; 3) improve prevention and management of childhood asthma; 4) reduce teen pregnancy rates; and 5) enhance violence education and prevention. The funding range is $5,000 to $25,000.
Each year, Kaiser Permanente provides funds to the local community to help improve the health of its members and the community it serves. In 2007, the local Community Benefit program awarded more than $750,000 to a variety of organizations in southern Alameda County.
Application deadline is on Friday, Jan. 25 at 4 p.m. For more information or to request a grant application, please contact the Kaiser Permanente Community Benefit Program of southern Alameda County at (510) 618-4018 or 510-618-5804.
