SACRAMENTO — Sierra Health Foundation, a private philanthropy serving Northern California, has awarded 19 grants totaling $249,782 in this year’s second funding round of its Responsive Grants Program. The grants of up to $15,000 each will support programs that improve health and well-being in the foundation’s Northern California funding region, which consists of 26 counties. Current funding commitments bring the Responsive Grants Program 2013 year total to $501,130.

“This is an important day for both Sierra Health Foundation and the counties we serve,” said Sierra Health Foundation President and CEO Chet P. Hewitt. “A big part of our mission is to help support the good work that organizations are doing in their communities to create health equity. We are privileged to be able to support a group of critical partners once again through our Responsive Grants Program.”

Grant recipients will offer a broad range of activities to help build strong, healthy individuals and families and reduce health disparities among vulnerable communities. Funded programs will serve seniors, veterans with disabilities, low-income and homeless individuals, foster youth and children. Selected programs will also address determinants of health by improving access to health care services, increasing opportunities for physical activity, providing food security and improving employment outcomes of people who are homeless.

Of the $501,130 awarded this funding year, 40 percent is directed to programs serving rural areas of the region. Since launching the Responsive Grants Program in 2008, the foundation has now awarded 263 grants totaling nearly $6 million in support.

Final grantee selection is based on the Responsive Grants Program selection criteria, quality of the applications, diversity in types of programs and populations served, and geographic representation across the funding region, with a minimum of 30 percent set aside for projects serving rural areas.

    I suspect no one wants to comment on these inexplicably TOP HEAVY {(*&^%$#@!!! +NONPROFITS+ !!!@#$%^&*}) (wink wink) that are supported by the TAXPAYERS. This is how they have sold the fraudulent """" college degree"""" mythology as well. Devote a rather substantial amount of taxpayer subsidized funding to overpriced tenure and books sold at 90% markup written by professors that rail against capitalism and donate millions to everyone apposed to your freedom. Get indoctrinated into devotion to centralized government and hope for the promise of either a public sector union extortion racket or some sort of taxpayer funded non profit. Anyone want to take a stab at how many "non-profits" have been invented over the last 20 years? It is an entrenchment within our society and to deny it is raising your hand to stupidity. It is past time to speak the TRUTH about all this nonsense going on within our country that is caused by TOO much government and is never solved by it.
