For decades, HCSC has worked in close collaboration with local community organizations and partners, leveraging their knowledge, experience and talents on a local level to help create healthier communities through our grant initiatives.
This year, HCSC is realigning its community investments into five newly redesigned areas of focus to help better support its umbrella mission of expanding access to care. The new community support focus areas more directly target the social determinants of health (SDOH). They are:
Economic Opportunity and Stability: Addressing issues such as poverty, removing barriers to employment, providing good jobs, and upskilling.
Nutrition: Supporting efforts to decrease hunger and increase access to nutritional food.
Neighborhood and Built Environment: Focusing on affordable healthy housing, access to transportation, and access to physical activity.
Locally Defined Health Solutions: Addressing hyperlocal health and human service needs.
Optimal Health Outcomes: Helping close gaps in care, specifically around six priority areas: immunizations; diabetes care; cardiovascular care; behavioral health; early detection cancer screening and maternal & infant health.
We welcome the opportunity to partner with nonprofit organizations that share our goals, and we invite you to visit our local community giving pages to learn more about the funding application process in your area.
