Kaiser Permanente Grants $80,000 for Community Outreach

Kaiser Permanente is a Hall of Fame company.


Kaiser Permanente has awarded a total of $80,000 in grants to two organizations in Hawaii striving to improve the health of residents.

“An important part of Kaiser Permanente in Hawaii’s mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve,” said Greg Christian, Hawaii Market President, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals. “This starts by supporting community organizations, like Hawaii Public Health Institute and KULA, that share this important goal.”

Hawaii Public Health Institute received $50,000 to aid its mission of improving the health of vulnerable populations in Hawaii that suffer from larger health disparities than other communities. The funding will contribute to advocating and developing changes to health policies that will increase access to health care, improve oral health and reduce tobacco use.

Kula No Na Poʻe Hawaiʻi (KULA) received $30,000 for its Community Health Worker Healthy Hui Initiative serving Native Hawaiian residents. The grant from Kaiser Permanente will support workshops led by community health workers. The funding will also support outreach to Papakolea, Kapolei and Waianae Valley Homesteads to address health issues such as diabetes, arthritis and obesity.
