HSSA Announces 2019 'Access to Care' Grants Awards

— The Health Sciences and Services Authority (HSSA) of Spokane County just announced the organizations who will receive nearly $300,000 in total grants in 2019 for the important access to health care work they do. HSSA said it received well over $700,000 in grant requests for its Access to Care grant funds, the highest amount ever requested.

In a unique 'Coordinated Health Initiative' promoted by HSSA, three local organizations: Spokane Neighborhood Action Partners (SNAP), Pioneer Human Services and Catholic Charities of Eastern Washington, will collaborate to provide community health workers to meet the needs of homeless households presenting for services across these agencies. The three will share a $120,000 grant from HSSA.

Partners with Families and Children will receive $75,000 in 2019 to help it keep meeting the needs of our community's most vulnerable populations, children who are victims of physical and/or sexual abuse. The funding supports specialized pediatric examinations and physician training.

YWCA Spokane will receive from HSSA $52,927 to grow its mental health services capability for victims of domestic violence.

Spokane Prescription Assistance Network will receive $30,000. It is one of the most cost effective programs HSSA has funded in that it has provided more than $21 million in donated prescribed pharmaceuticals in the Spokane region to those who otherwise could not afford their medications, for an 18 to 1 return on investment.

Priority Spokane's Ryan Oelrich said his organization will use its $15,000 grant for women currently enrolled in the Women Infants and Children (WIC) program who need housing and support services.

HSSA's grant competition helps to meet one of its strategic goals that is to increase access to health services in Spokane County for at risk populations and represents a fund of about 15 percent of annual revenues designated for this purpose. More information about all HSSA grants may be found at www.hssaspokane.org.
