Community Grants

Helping those who help our neighbors

Tri-City Healthcare District (TCHD) is committed to working collaboratively to improve health and well-being in our community.

Each year the TCHD Board of Directors allocates funds for healthcare projects of non-profit agencies located in and serving residents of Carlsbad, Oceanside and Vista.

These funds are allocated through a grant process, coordinated by the Community Healthcare Alliance Committee (CHAC).

2016 Winners

The 2016 grants were awarded to 19 local non-profit programs totaling a collective $300,000. Notable for 2016 is that over half of the recipient’s programs had a mental health program focus. Applications were reviewed and recommendations were made by the Community Healthcare Alliance Committee (CHAC).

Grants were awarded to address three areas selected by the CHAC:

  • Healthcare access
  • Health conditions related to lifestyle, including obesity and overweight, physical activity and exercise, diabetes, and heart disease
