Community Health Investments
Social determinants play a critical role in determining the health of individuals and communities. To encourage external community organizations, public agencies, and providers to deliver quality health-enhancing supportive services that address social determinants of health, Gold Coast Health Plan has established the Community Health Investments program to award monetary grants to qualified organizations.
In Fiscal Year 2016-17, GCHP awarded $1.5 million in grants to organizations throughout Ventura County for programs that focused on the following three social determinants of health:
- Access to quality health care
- Access to quality and affordable food options
- Neighborhood and built environments
