Community Wellness Investment Fund

All of us at Columbia Pacific CCO care about the health of our communities. That’s why we developed the Community Health Improvement Plan, which identified three priority areas for influencing the health of individuals and the overall community:

  • Obesity
  • Mental health
  • Substance abuse

We’d like to encourage local organizations in their efforts to work on these three priorities. To do that, we created a grant program called the Community Wellness Improvement Fund. Our goal is to support innovative, collaborative and transformative projects that can impact these serious needs.

We invite applicants from within our service area who are working to improve the health of our communities in new ways--ways that take a different approach to these large and longstanding challenges. We’re particularly interested in projects that serve individuals where they live, including those living outside cities and major towns in Columbia, Clatsop and Tillamook counties.

The application and funding process is now open. 

In order to be considered for funding, all proposals must be complete. Grant proposals can be submitted at any time July 1, 2018 through August 15, 2018. Approved proposals in 2018 will receive one year of funding. Applicants will be notified of the status of their grant request the last week of September 2018.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
