The Greater San Francisco service area includes the City and County of San Francisco (served by our San Francisco Medical Center on Geary Blvd.) and the northern part of San Mateo County (served by our South San Francisco Medical Center on El Camino Real).
In addition to providing subsidized health care and coverage for low-income people, Kaiser Permanente engages the community with a variety of resources including: service grants to address identified health needs, donations and sponsorships to support events and activities of our community partners, in-kind donations and volunteers, and technical assistance from our clinicians and healthcare experts.
Kaiser Permanente provides financial support to local nonprofit health and human service organizations that serve low-income, under-resourced communities. Grants must address the priority health needs identified in the last Community Health Needs Assessment.
The Greater San Francisco service area conducts two annual competitive grant solicitations -- one for services in San Francisco, and a separate solicitation for services in north San Mateo county. This competitive RFP process is the only opportunity in 2019 to request grant funding from Kaiser Permanente in San Francisco and South San Francisco.

We are proud to share with you our San Francisco and South San Francisco 2016 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) report. The report reflects Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to working with other organizations to address the most urgent health needs in the communities we serve.
Conducting these assessments and making them available to the public is also important in meeting new federal requirements outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We invite you to view the Community Health Needs Assessments for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital and submit comments on our CHNA web page.
