Identify whether this grant request is for core operating support or for project support.
Core operating support helps underwrite the day-to-day administrative, infrastructure and overhead costs that enable an organization to carry out its mission. Core operating support from Cal Wellness may also be used to sustain a specific, ongoing program within an organization, or to maintain existing health services.
Project support refers to the development of a new, or expansion of a specific, program or efforts to address the social determinants of health and improve the health of Californians. Two examples of project support are development of a new health education program, and staff salaries for a new project or program.
