About the Grant Program


Since 1998, the Eden Health District has provided grants to non-profit and government agencies to improve the health and well-being of local residents. This is the first time that significant funds have been available specifically for central Alameda County residents, enabling local agencies to boost services to people of all ages and needs.

These grants have proven to be a valuable resource to these agencies and to the public.


The following priorities are based on community needs and are set forth to help guide interested organizations in determining eligibility for funding through the Community Health Fund project grants:

  • Mental Health, housing & homelessness, food & nutrition, and health access
  • Support effective health education, prevention and intervention programs, both new and existing, that demonstrate measurable outcomes
  • Address the needs of underserved people and health priorities of the community
  • Programs that support collaborative efforts among other community agencies and organizations (The District will place a priority on collaboration with and among community agencies applying for Community Health Fund grant money to maximize use of funds and impact while avoiding the fostering of competing programs that may make each such competing program become less effective.)


Eligible organizations may apply for:

  • Small Grants, up to $5,000
  • Large Grants, up to $25,000

The applications and guidelines for these grants are different. Please visit the application page for more information.


The Eden Health District looks for opportunities to help create strategic alliances among individuals and organizations, harnessing their collective power to confront, explore and solve significant health care issues in the Eden Health District.
