Getting To Zero Grants to Date
Together with local government and business partners, Sutter Health is committed to helping raise $20 million over three years to support this effort and will match up to $10 million in contributions to the Getting to Zero campaign. As of July 2017, Sutter Health has partnered with four local jurisdictions – making matching grants that total almost $2 million.
City of Roseville: $250,000
City of Davis: $233,000
Sutter Health awarded the City of Davis with a $233,000 matching grant to increase permanent supportive housing for its chronically homeless population. The funds will be used to support Davis Pathways, which will serve an estimated 45 individuals over three years. While elements of Davis Pathways have been in place for several months, the matching grant from Sutter Health provides the funding needed to incorporate job training, bridge rental assistance, and supportive services.

Placer County: $1,000,000
Placer County received a $1 million matching grant from Sutter Health to buy housing and rental subsidies for up to 20 homeless people a year. The donation is going to the county Whole Person Care pilot program and involves purchasing housing units for participants to use. The Whole Person Care Program is a major, five-year pilot powered by $10 million in federal funding, which the county will match by reassigning funds. Read the announcement here.
City of Sacramento: $433,000
Sutter Health gave a $433,000 matching grant to the City of Sacramento to expand services at the Salvation Army’s Center of Hope Emergency Shelter. The funding will support services for 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Read the announcement here.
Programs to be considered for matching grants must meet several baseline requirements, including:
- Alignment with the Housing First response to homelessness, meaning any program involving access to housing for individuals experiencing homelessness must be low or no-barrier.
- Funding to be matched must be new or reallocated money, not coming from existing homeless programs.
- Program must involve services or programs within the jurisdiction’s Continuum of Care.
