We are honored to announce PHPDA’s Major Grant awards of more than $3 million to 20 community partners to improve health care access and outcomes.

“Each year, it’s a special moment for PHPDA to announce a class of new Major Grant partners. 2022 is no exception. From an outstanding applicant pool, these programs emerged as our top choices for taking community-centric approaches to health equity. We look forward to learning from them as they work to improve access to healthcare services and health resources for unserved and underserved populations in Seattle and King County.”

— John Kim, Executive Director
