Kaiser Permanente NW, Legacy Health, PeaceHealth and Providence Health & Services collaboratively created the Health Systems Access to Care Fund for community-supported clinics in the combined service areas of Oregon and SW Washington.

The goal of this funding opportunity is to strengthen the capacity and infrastructure for clinics that are expanding and/or adapting their current models to respond to the changing needs of patient populations due to ongoing healthcare reform, Medicaid transformation, and the increasing pressure on the safety net for access to care.

Applications are being accepted beginning October 1, 2018. The deadline is November 1, 2018.

Clinics may request up to two years of funding for a total of up to $100,000 ($50,000 per year) to support the selected project areas. Year 2 funding is contingent upon funding partners’ recognition of successful completion of year 1 objectives and submission of an annual report.
