El Camino Health is proud to announce the opening of the fiscal year 2025 (FY25) Community Benefit Grant application period.
FY25 grant applications opened December 13, 2023. The deadline to submit applications is February 23, 2024, at 5 p.m. (PST). Award notifications will be sent in late June 2024, for funds to be used from July 1, 2024, through June 30, 2025.
Our Community Benefit Grant Program has long provided financial support for safety net health clinics, school district health programs, community service agencies and nonprofit organizations that support community health.
El Camino Health uses information from the most recent 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) to inform the Community Benefit grant-making process, which is described in El Camino Health's annual Implementation Strategy Report and Community Benefit Plan. The CHNA is conducted every three years by El Camino Health in collaboration with other local health systems.
The five health needs selected are:
- Healthcare Access and Delivery (including oral health)
- Behavioral Health (including domestic violence and trauma)
- Diabetes and Obesity
- Chronic Conditions (other than diabetes and obesity)
- Economic Stability (including food insecurity, housing and homelessness)

(The El Camino Healthcare District offers separate grant and sponsorship funds in support of programs that serve those who live, work or go to school in the District. Visit El Camino Healthcare District grants to find out more.)
