Grants acquisition is a key component of
MCHC's fiscal strategy. We use grant funds to increase our patients'
access to health services. We pursue a broad array of funding
Federal grants are MCHC's main source of grant funding; they ensure operational support and uncompensated care for various vulnerable populations (e.g., low-income families, people living with HIV/AIDS, farm workers or the homeless). Current federal grants include the Public Health Service Section 330 (PHS 330) Grant and Part C Ryan White Care Act Grant Funding.
Due to California’s budget crisis, traditional clinic funding from the State has been discontinued at the current time.
Local and Private Foundation Grants
These funds may be used for a variety of purposes including core operating support, capital improvements and direct services. Grants recently awarded include funds from the Community Foundation of Mendocino County, The Tides Foundation, The California Wellness Foundation and Blue Shield of California Foundation. Additionally, donations are received from a variety of local community-based organizations and individuals.
Recent partners in MCHC collaborative grants include the Alliance for Rural Community Health, Ukiah Valley Medical Center, Sutter Lakeside Hospital, Ford Street Project, and the Mendocino County AIDS and Viral Hepatitis Network.
