In 2022, we held our first annual Community Initiative Grant process and awarded 14 organizations funding. Through this program, Lane Community Health Council in partnership with PacificSource Community Solutions is investing $1.7 million in upstream solutions that address community needs in the areas of youth behavioral health, the behavioral health workforce, and the Lane County’s 2021 – 2025 Community Health Improvement Plan (CHP) priorities:

  • Ensure incomes are sufficient to meet basic costs of living
  • Establish community conditions that support behavioral health and physical well-being, and
  • Address current and historical injustices that produce disparities.

We are excited to continue to support all of these organizations as they create innovative and responsive solutions to improve the health of our community!
