The California Health Facilities Financing Authority Accepting Applications for Small and Rural Health Facilities Adversely Affected by Reductions in Federal Funding.

  Grant Amount: Grants of up to $250,000 per facility are available.

Information

The California Health Facilities Financing Authority is accepting applications for the Clinic Lifeline Grant Program. The program assists small and rural health facilities, including community-based clinics, that may be adversely affected financially by a reduction or elimination of federal government assistance and that have little to no access to working capital. The support may be used to support core operations as the facility develops plans to deal with a loss of federal government assistance. Each applicant must explain the “Federal Trigger”, which is any federal executive, administrative or legislative action or inaction that impacts any reimbursement or eligibility for participation in any federal program or initiative. A health facility cannot apply until a Federal Trigger has occurred.

Eligibility

Eligible applicants must meet one of the following requirements:

Tax-exempt nonprofit corporation with gross revenues not exceeding ten million dollars 
Tax-exempt nonprofit corporation located in a rural medical service study area 
A clinic operated by a district hospital or health care district

Additionally, programs must:

Provide a minimum of two of the five medical health services listed in the definition below: Medical health services means the services provided by a health facility to persons for prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of illness or injury limited to:
reproductive services; family planning; sexual health services such as testing and treatment for STD, AIDS, and HIV, etc.; geriatric services; or chronic disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. 
50% or more of the persons served have income levels equal to or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level. 
