Sustainable Financing

Health Action’s vision demands a collective approach to investing in and addressing critical health issues on a local level. Health Action aims to bolster its efforts to achieve health equity by building a sustainable financing platform that will attract new capital, sustain investments, coordinate existing streams of capital for priority outcomes, and test innovative forms of financing that will meaningfully improve health outcomes in Sonoma County.

  • In 2017, Health Action’s Sustainable Financing Catalyst team published a Sustainable Financing Analysis with Third Sector Capital Partners. The analysis proposes recommendations and steps for Health Action to develop and sustain a financing strategy and build a wellness fund to support Health Action priorities and activities. These recommendations are currently being tested and advanced through the California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI) grant.
