$5.15 Million Provided to Support Local Health Care Needs
Date:12/16/2008

AUSTIN, Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In this season of giving and sharing, St. David's Community Health Foundation is delighted to announce that it is awarding $5.15 million in grants to area nonprofit organizations that provide access to health care for Central Texans.

"Especially this year, we are mindful of the need to ensure access to health care for Central Texans," said Earl Maxwell, CEO of St. David's Community Health Foundation. "The ongoing economic downturn, increased layoffs and employment cutbacks have highlighted a crucial need in our community. With an eight percent increase in our grants, we hope these receiving organizations are able to provide reliable, affordable and effective care to Central Texans who are uninsured and underserved."

St. David's Community Health Foundation awards grants to area nonprofits twice each year. Mental health grants are announced in the spring, while physical health grants are announced in December. Since 1996, the Foundation has approved more than $22 million in funding to community partners promoting access to primary health care and related services.

"We work with the recipient agencies year-round to help monitor needs, and we have been struck by the increase in demand at the area safety net clinics. It is an important time to do all that we can to help address these needs," said Bobbie Barker, Vice President for Grants and Community Programs.

Close to $1 million awarded for agencies providing services to older adults

Thirteen organizations providing care to Austin's elderly community will receive a total of $927,908. One of the grant recipients, Austin Groups for the Elderly, will use the funding to provide supportive services to enhance independent living for older adults, allowing them to live their lives in their own homes and communities.

Just under $500,000 awarded to special populations
