Community Wellness Investment Fund

CPCCO, their advisors, and community partners engaged in a community conversation through 2018 and 2019 about the factors that create health and well-being for all individuals who live in Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook Counties. The resulting five-year regional health improvement plan makes the commitment to increase the intersection between healthcare, social services and the social determinants of health.  Our goal is to support the efforts community wide that maximize the creation of, and investment in, health and well-being through community-based supports and services, along with the efforts to improve population health. In partnership CPCCO identified eight priority areas for improving health, well-being and resiliency for individuals and communities. The priority areas are:

  • Community Resilience and Trauma Informed Care
  • Access to Care: Primary Care
  • Access to Care: Behavioral Health
  • Access to Care: Oral Health and Dental Care
  • Access to Care: Social Safety Net
  • Chronic Disease Prevention
  • Suicide Prevention
  • Housing

We’d like to support local organizations in their efforts to work on these priorities. To do that, we created a grant program called the Community Wellness Investment Fund. Our goal is to support innovative, collaborative and transformative projects that support the goals and strategies of the priority areas.  

Emphasis will be on projects that are collaborative, sustainable, and integrative across the spectrum of health interventions, including social determinants. Funded projects are also intended to show sustainability over time, as well as leveraging existing community resources.

The application process is open July 29- August 31, 2019. 

We have transferred the application process to a digital platform called ZoomGrants.  This on-line process will automate many of the manual processes we currently use to solicit, review, and recommend funding.
