The Alliance’s Medi-Cal Capacity Grant Program (MCGP) makes investments to health care and community organizations in Merced, Monterey and Santa Cruz counties to increase the availability, quality and access of health care and supportive resources for Medi-Cal members. These grants address social drivers that influence health and wellness in our communities.  

The Alliance is pleased to announce the following new MCGP funding opportunities launching in early April 2023: 

  1. Provider Recruitment Program for Community Health Workers (CHWs): Grants to support recruitment and hiring of CHWs who become credentialed to provide the compensable CHW Service Benefit to the Medi-Cal population in Merced, Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. 
  2. Healthcare Technology Program: Grants to support the purchase and implementation of certain technology and infrastructure that improve members’ access to care and result in high quality health care services and operational efficiencies. 
  3. Home Visiting Program: Grants to support the implementation or expansion of home visiting programs that use evidence-based models with trained professionals for pregnant persons and parents of children up to age 5.  
  4. Partners for Active Living Program: Grants to support community-based projects that provide children, adults and families opportunities to engage in physical activity and recreation programs in the community and engage health care providers in partnering on program coordination and referral of Medi-Cal members to these resources. 

Details about the new funding opportunities will be posted in early April 2023. There will be a rapid application round to launch these new programs, with applications due May 5, 2023, and awards made June 28, 2023.
