Proposed Imperial County Health & Wellness Fund
On July 12, 2018, Alliance Healthcare Foundation (AHF) released a Request for Interest (RFI) to solicit input and ideas for establishment of a $25 million health and wellness fund in Imperial County, California.
To help meet the need for local resources that can be used to address health disparities in the county, AHF has reserved $7.5 million until Dec. 31, 2019, for a potential matching grant that would be provided once $17.5 million is raised from other sources. The purpose of the RFI is to stimulate and assess interest in the fund and to gather information that will be useful in finalizing the details of a Request for Proposals (RFP) that AHF expects to release later this year.
AHF now invites all interested parties to describe a process, structure, and timeline that will help achieve the vision for a locally controlled fund that will provide Imperial County with an enduring source of funding to advance health and wellness in the region.
