Grants of up to $30,000 to King County, Washington nonprofit organizations and government agencies to reduce health disparities and improve access to health resources. While applicants must be based in King County, project beneficiaries may be underserved groups throughout the Puget Sound region. Funding is available for both new and existing projects.

Pacific Hospital PDA accomplishes its grantmaking mission through these strategic goals:

-Access to health resources: Pacific Hospital PDA focuses its grantmaking on improving access to a broad range of health resources, including primary and specialty care, preventive health care, behavioral health (such as mental health and substance use treatment) and oral health care.

-Improvement in health outcomes: Pacific Hospital PDA focuses on improving the capability of the healthcare system by supporting resources that link and coordinate health services for underserved communities.

Funding Priorities:

Nimble Fund grants are primarily focused on infrastructure improvements or small projects that help agencies carry out the Pacific Hospital PDA’s mission of improving health care access and outcomes for underserved populations. Funds awarded under this process may be used for the following purposes:

-Short term, time-limited projects
-Infrastructure and capacity development
-Technology improvement
-Training, including internal staff training and external community trainings/educational events
-Policy and advocacy work

Funding may be used as a bridge to support staff salaries during the project year only if there is a clear plan for ongoing future funding.

Funding Principals:

Pacific Hospital PDA is responsible for ensuring that funding is allocated to organizations that adhere to the Pacific Hospital PDA’s mission and goals. To that end, projects funded under this process must adhere to the following fundamental Pacific Hospital PDA principles:

-Address the needs of underserved populations;
-Ensure access to existing and emerging health care resources;
-Adapt to changes in the health care delivery system and fill gaps in care.

Estimated Total Program Funding:


Estimated Size of Grant:

Up to $30,000

Term of Contract:

All award funds must be expended within one year of the earliest program start date listed for each funding round

For Round 3, the earliest project start date is January 1, 2018 and the latest project end date is December 31, 2018.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Nonprofit, governmental and public organizations may apply. Agencies that do not currently have nonprofit status may apply for funds through a fiscal sponsor. Should the grant be funded, the sponsor organization will be the contracted grantee and the contract will specify the project to be performed by the sponsored organization.

Funding under this application is reserved for services located in King County. There is no geographic restriction on the residence of clients served or advocacy efforts provided under these funds, as long as the program can demonstrate that the use of the funds will address disparities in health care access and outcomes among residents of the Puget Sound region (King, Snohomish, Pierce, and Kitsap Counties).

Organizations may not receive two Pacific Hospital PDA grants in the same year for the same project. If a program is currently funded under the Pacific Hospital PDA’s Major grant process, these funds may not be used to augment that funding. However, the agency would be allowed to request Nimble Funds for a different project.

Pre-Application Information:

Agencies may submit applications for a Nimble Grant at any time. A total of $225,000 is available in funding for the 2018 calendar year. The Pacific Hospital PDA will announce grant awards based on the timeline below, until such time as the available pool of funding has been expended.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the Pacific Hospital PDA prior to submitting an application with any questions regarding the grant process or how the application can best fit the grant criteria.
