Grants will help Inland nonprofits provide COVID vaccines

Ten Inland Empire nonprofits have received grants from Health Net that will help increase vaccinations in communities hit hard by COVID.

Those grants are part of $4.5 donation Health Net is making statewide to more than 80 nonprofits to increase vaccine equity, according to a statement.

“After serving California’s most vulnerable residents for more than four decades, we understand that healthcare is best delivered locally,” said Martha Santana-Chin, Medi-Cal president of Health Net, in the statement

“When we set out to dispel myths about the COVID-19 vaccines in regions with the lowest vaccination rates, we partnered with nonprofits that are trusted voices in their communities.”

The Inland agencies that received grants are:

  • Black Women for Wellness
  • Clinicas De Salud Del Pueblo
  • LA Dept. Health Services
  • LA Dept. of Public Health
  • Leadership Counsel for Justice & Accountability
  • Lestonnac Free Clinic
  • Neighborhood Healthcare
  • Unidos Por La Música
  • Via Care Community Health Center
  • Wesley Health Center

The amount received per agency was not released. Health Net, a longtime Medi-Cal partner, provides health insurance for an estimated three million Californians, according to the statement.
