Community Impact Fund

Through our Community Impact Fund, the WHC is pleased to announce the launch of two grant opportunities for our community in 2022. In accordance with our mission, this fund focuses on improving the social determinants of health, health equity, and the quality of healthcare in the Marion-Polk CCO region. The fund is overseen by our Community Impact Committee (CIC), which is made up of a diverse group of community representatives. Overall, the CIC is focused on bridging gaps in community health initiatives through policy work, the development and testing of new services, and strengthening relationships and synergies between health and social care providers. Seeking to align with the 2021-2025 Community Health Improvement Plan, the CIC has identified four priority areas for funding:

  • Behavioral Health Crisis System
  • Housing
  • Traditional Health Workers
  • Support for the WHC’s mission
