Non-profit organizations in Benton, Lincoln and Linn counties interested in applying for Social Accountability funding from one of Samaritan’s five Samaritan hospitals are invited to submit a letter of interest by noon, Jan. 29.

Local agencies should submit a one-page letter that includes a brief description of the proposed project, goals, objectives, target population and how it will address one of the outlined priorities. For the coastal hospitals, the letter may be addressed to one or both hospitals. Applicants may only apply to both hospitals if the service area encompasses all of Lincoln county.

Social accountability priorities for 2016 are as follows:
  • Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center: Adult oral care, wrap-around services, transitional housing for homeless, mental health, drug and alcohol treatment, access to health care and social supports for children, families and seniors.
  • Samaritan Albany General Hospital: Access to care, health related services, chronic care, substance abuse prevention and tobacco cessation.
  • Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital: Access to health care, basic health care, oral health, pediatric obesity, child abuse or neglect, homelessness, teen pregnancy prevention and mental health.
  • Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital and Samaritan Pacific Communities Hospital: Basic health care, oral health, pediatric obesity, child abuse or neglect, teen pregnancy, substance addiction and prevention, homelessness, literacy and tobacco cessation.

Agencies who are invited to submit a full proposal will be notified by Feb. 12, 2016 and will have an opportunity to attend a grant application meeting on Feb. 19, 2016.
