Community Health Excellence grants

Helping our provider partners deliver innovative care

We recognize COVID-19 has an unprecedented impact on your practice. PacificSource has taken steps to help support you during this crisis, including our Provider Relief Plan and Community Health Excellence (CHE) Responsive Grants program.

Community Health Excellence grants

CHE Responsive Grants program closed

Due to an unprecedented response, we are no longer accepting applications for the CHE Responsive Grants process.

As with prior years, we will launch our regular CHE grant program that funds healthcare delivery innovations starting in January 2021. Information about the CHE grant program for the 2021-2022 cycle will be available late 2020.

Thank you for all you do to support the health and well-being of our communities.

Goals of our CHE grant program:

Create and expand an environment of collaborative and innovative engagement
between PacificSource Health Plans and providers who share a vision for better community health, better healthcare, and lower healthcare costs.

Foster an environment of continuous patient care improvement among providers 
who practice in the areas PacificSource Health Plans serves.

Elicit the diverse capabilities of provider organizations 
in ways that make significant, positive health impacts for community members.

Each CHE application is independently evaluated based on its impact on patients, without regard to their insurance status. The program has sparked healthcare delivery innovation in a wide array of hospital and physician group practices, funding more than 100 projects across Oregon, Idaho, and Montana. CHE grants are available in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and Washington state.

Apply for a CHE grant

All contracted PacificSource providers are eligible to apply for one-year CHE grants. Grant awards range from $30,000-$50,000.

To be considered for funding, providers need to:

  • Submit an application and PacificSource budget form.
  • Demonstrate clear objectives supported by measurable data to evaluate progress toward the project’s goals and outcomes.
  • Ensure the proposal meets the Triple Aim and benefits all of the provider’s patients, not just PacificSource members.

The application period for the 2021-2022 funding cycle opens in January 2021. More information and forms will be posted here in late 2020.
