Kaiser Permanente is pleased to announce the 2020 Community Benefit Grants Program for the Marin-Sonoma Service Area.

Community Health Needs Assessment

Please note that 2020 is the first year of funding dedicated to addressing the health needs and strategies identified in the 2020-2022 Community Health Needs Assessment and some of the health needs and strategies have changed from the prior cycle. To view the Community Health Needs Assessment for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital, please visit Kaiser Permanente Community Health Needs Assessments.

Through the community health needs assessment process, priority health and social needs were identified to help guide our contributions to the community. To qualify for consideration, grant requests must be focused on meeting at least one of the funding priorities outlined below.
