In addition to providing health care and coverage for low-income people, Kaiser Permanente’s community investments include grants, sponsorships, and volunteerism.
The South Sacramento Service area supports Sacramento County south of Highway 50, encompassing the cities of Sacramento, Elk Grove and Galt and also a portion of Amador County.

Community Health Needs Assessment
We are proud to share with you our 2013 Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) report. The report reflects Kaiser Permanente’s long-standing commitment to working with other organizations to address the most urgent health needs in the communities we serve.
Conducting these assessments and making them available to the public is also important in meeting new federal requirements outlined in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We invite you to view the Community Health Needs Assessments for each Kaiser Foundation Hospital and submit comments on our CHNA web page.
Through our in-depth CHNA, we identified health priorities, health disparities, and barriers to health care for vulnerable and underserved populations. The findings from this study guide our contributions to the community.
Kaiser Permanente’s priority needs identified for the South Sacramento Area in 2014 are as follows:
- Access to care
- Healthy eating and active living
- Safety as a health issue
New in 2014, potential grantees will be asked to participate in a Letter of Intent (LOI) process.
LOIs will be accepted until February 10, 2014. Organizations that are asked to submit a full application will be notified by March 5th.
