Step Three:

Submission of Grant Application: LOI applicants that are invited to submit a grant application will be provided access to the Kaiser Permanente of Georgia online grant application. Organizations are encouraged to participate in one of two Application Technical Assistance and Outcomes Webinar sessions, which will provide applicants with technical assistance on the application and setting outcomes related to the grant cycle's focus, and other useful information to consider in writing grant proposals. After application submission, Kaiser Permanente staff may conduct site visits with grant applicants to provide the grant committee with more detail about the organization and proposed project.

Step Four:

Application Review Meeting: A grant review committee will meet to assess each submission, and make funding recommendations. Applicants will be notified of the committee's decision following the review meeting.


Please note: Organizations that do not have a current Kaiser Permanente grant may submit an LOI before the deadline. Organizations with a current Kaiser Permanente grant must have completed their grant period and submitted ALL reports before becoming eligible to submit an LOI.

Q:What is Community Benefit?

Kaiser Permanente of Georgia cares for people – both inside and outside of the exam room. As a non-profit, tax exempt health plan, our idea of health care goes beyond the walls of our medical facilities and into the 33 counties that comprise our Georgia service area.

Community Benefit supports efforts that improve access to care for all – especially the low-income and underserved. We work to benefit the community at-large by addressing issues most affecting residents' health as documented in our Needs Assessment. Community Benefit is more than what we do; it's who we are.
