It is believed thousands of people in Placer County are getting their wellness needs met through their natural networks of family, friends, faith groups, and community groups, and are not accessing local government for deeper-end mental health services.
Placer's Community Wellness Mini-Grants Program recognizes these natural networks and provides funding for the contribution community makes in keeping people well. The goal is to learn from, and build upon what these natural networks can provide through this program.
The application process is now open. Please see the application below. Document available in Word format upon request.
