Community Partnership Fund

The Carson Tahoe Health Community Partnership Fund provides assistance to enhance the health and well-being of the communities we serve through sponsorships and grants. The Fund seeks to promote health equity – a state where everyone has the opportunity to live their healthiest life.

At CTH, we know that health is so much more than healthcare. The conditions in which people live, work, and play can significantly influence health. Through the Fund, we support organizations that enhance health across five areas, frequently called the social determinants of health:

  • Economic Stability (i.e. food and housing security, employment, workforce development, building community resilience)
  • Education Access and Quality (i.e. literacy programs, early childhood education)
  • Social and Community Context (i.e. social cohesion, combat discrimination and racism, community and civic engagement)
  • Health and Health Care (i.e. access to health care, mental health, innovation in the health field, culturally-competent care)
  • Neighborhood and Built Environment (i.e. clean air and water, public places to play and exercise, strengthening existing infrastructure)

CTH also prioritizes projects, sponsorships, and organizations that positively impact our top community health needs as identified by our Community Health Needs Assessment:

  • Mental Health
  • Access to Healthcare
  • Nutrition, Physical Activity, & Weight Management
  • Heart Disease & Stroke
