(Salem, Ore. – March 29, 2021) – Salem Health will award Community Investment Grants for fiscal year 2021-22, aimed at responding to community-identified needs and supporting initiatives that improve the health of the citizens of Marion and Polk counties. Grant awards are for one year of funding, up to $30,000 per grant. Applications open on April 5, and the deadline to apply is May 7. Application forms and detailed criteria are available at Salem Health’s website.
The goal of the Community Investment Grant is to strengthen the health of our communities. Salem Health’s funding priorities align with the Marion-Polk Community Health Improvement Plan and Community Needs Assessment. Salem Health’s priority areas for 2020-23 seek to invest grant resources in projects that meet needs related to behavioral health, substance abuse prevention and social determinants of health.
“We are pleased to invest in community partners fostering health in those we serve,” said Leilani Slama, Chief Communications and Community Relations Officer, Salem Health. “Together, we are creating a healthier community.”
In 2020-21, Salem Health awarded two $30,000 Community Investment Grants to increase health services to vulnerable populations – through Mano a Mano Family Center and Mid-Willamette Valley Community Action Agency’s HOME Youth Services. Both organizations help connect vulnerable populations with a range of services needed to maintain good health.
