Grants to California nonprofits, school districts, and government entities in eligible counties for health programs that meet the health needs of underserved community members. Depending on funding amount and geography, applicants can apply via the hospital or the healthcare district. The programs should serve individuals in and around the cities of Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and parts of northern Santa Clara County.
The Hospital and the District provide separate grant opportunities for programs that align with current funding priorities. The primary distinction between the El Camino Hospital and El Camino Healthcare District Community Benefit Program is geography. District funds are restricted to serve only those individuals who live, work, or go to school in the District’s boundaries. The District funds both small grants (up to $25,000) and program grants and the Hospital funds program grants only.
El Camino Healthcare District:
Grant programs serving individuals who live, work, or go to school in Mountain View, Los Altos, Los Altos Hills, Sunnyvale, and/or parts of Cupertino should only apply for El Camino Healthcare District funding. Programs need not serve every city in the District.

Note: Programs serving cities in the El Camino Healthcare District should apply to the District where possible, as the District generally has more funding available.
There are two types of funding available:
- Program Grants: These grants are available to organizations requesting funding for programs that address identified health needs within the funding priorities.
- Small Grants: These grants are available to organizations with annual operating budgets of less than $1 million. Compared to Program Grants, Small Grants have a shorter application and require fewer reporting requirements.

- Address identified health need(s) in one of the identified Health Priority areas
- Meet geographic requirement by serving individuals who live, work or go to school in the District boundaries or Hospital service area
