Public Policy and Advocacy Strategies

Public policy engagement is a key strategy for ensuring sustainable improvements in population health. As a result, health philanthropy plays a vital and unique role in the public policy process. GIH works to build understanding between health grantmakers and policymakers, and supports grantmakers in their efforts to advance policy change.

April 2017

The Sierra Health Foundation has announced a $1.3 million investment in the Positive Youth Justice Initiative which will shift focus from engaging large systems to providing support to coalitions of nonprofit community based advocates in 11 counties across the state. Funded by Sierra Health Foundation, The California Endowment, The California Wellness Foundation, and the Zellerbach Family Foundation, the initiative will engage youth, families, and communities of color who are disproportionately impacted by the juvenile justice system to develop local policy agendas and a stronger, more cohesive constituency that can advocate for system transformation.
