Community grant programs

Columbia Pacific CCO has been engaging in conversations with our advisors and community partners about factors that create better health outcomes and well-being for all individuals living in Clatsop, Columbia and Tillamook counties. These conversations have resulted in a five-year Regional Health Improvement Plan (RHIP) committed to increase the intersection between healthcare, social services, and the social determinants of health. 

Our goal is to encourage and assist community-wide efforts that maximize the creation and investment in health and well-being through community-based supports and services, along with the efforts to improve population health.

In supporting local organizations in their efforts to address these priorities, we have created three grant programs:

  • Columbia Pacific CCO Large Grant Program (over $25,000)
  • Community Wellness Investment Fund (CWIF) (up to $25,000)
  • Regional Housing Impact Fund

Health Related Social Needs Community Capacity Building Funding

Application window: March 1 – May 31, 2024

As part of the state’s recent Oregon Health Plan 1115 waiver, Oregon was approved to offer nutrition services, housing supports, and climate devices to Oregon Health Plan (OHP, or Medicaid) members experiencing a qualifying life transition.

This support, called the Health Related Social Needs (HRSN) benefit, will help vulnerable populations access resources to stay healthy during and after life transitions. The HRSN benefit will be phased in over the timeline below: 

  • Medically necessary climate devices available March 2024
  • Housing services for individuals who are at risk of homeless available November 2024
  • Nutrition services available January 2025
  • Housing benefits will continue to roll out for additional OHP members throughout 2025

Implementing the HRSN benefit will provide new opportunities for Coordinated Care Organizations (CCOs) to partner, coordinate care, identify needs, and track access to climate, housing and nutrition services. Community-based organizations, social service agencies, and housing and food providers will play an important role in delivering services to eligible OHP members. You can read more about this benefit on our Health Related Social Needs (HRSN) page.

As part of this initiative, funding will be available statewide to support organizations that are interested in becoming HRSN providers. Oregon Health Authority will be distributing this funding regionally to the CCOs, and the CCOs will be responsible for reviewing applications, awarding funding, and monitoring use of the funds. This funding will allow Columbia Pacific CCO to offer grants to organizations to build the necessary capabilities and capacity to provide climate, housing, and nutrition services as a Medicaid health benefit. Funding will be available to support investment and activities in four categories:

  • Technology
  • Development of Business or Operational Practices
  • Workforce development
  • Outreach, education, and convening

Columbia Pacific will be accepting applications for the Community Capacity Building Funding from March 1 – May 31, 2024 through the ZoomGrants link below. The ZoomGrants application includes three parts: a ZoomGrants form, Additional Application Questions attachment, and Budget Request spreadsheet. Templates for the budget and additional application questions are available in the Documents section of Zoom Grants. Applications will be evaluated using the criteria included in  OHA’s scoring rubric.
