Grants on Housing

On July 5, 2017, Partnership HealthPlan of California (PHC) released a Request For Proposals for Local Innovation Grants on Housing. The one-time grants, totaling
$25 million, are for housing and housing supports for the PHC population. In accordance with our mission, to help our members and communities be healthy, PHC has been working to address the social determinants of health – the social and environmental factors that affect the health and welfare of individuals and communities. A critical determinant of health is one's housing situation. Many of PHC's members experience homelessness and precarious or inadequate housing conditions. Through the housing initiative, PHC will work with our communities to support the health and health care needs of our members. Grant applications have been received throughout our entire 14-county region. We look forward to partnering with our communities on these upcoming innovations.

 

Status Update – 

Timing of Grant Decisions

PHC has completed preliminary review of all housing project proposals received.  Over the next two weeks, we will finalize our funding recommendations.

Funding decisions will be announced in early November.

If your proposal included No Place Like Home funding assistance, please click here for more information.​
