BCHD Offers Opportunities for Residents

Mar 11, 2019 08:55AM ● By Jeanne Fratello
The Beach Cities Health District is looking out for your health - and is looking for ways to get you involved. BCHD is currently looking for volunteers to serve on its public committees and accepting grant applications from nonprofits.

All qualified residents and high school students are invited to apply to serve on BCHD's advisory committees. The committees with available spots include: 

  • The Community Health Committee, which advises the board on community health and wellness concerns,monitors the availability of community health resources, and recommends areas for programs and services.
  • The Strategic Planning Committee, which helps the board formulate and fulfill the vision, mission, and goals of BCHD.
  • The Finance Committee, which works with the board to ensure the financial health of BCHD.
Applicants must reside in Hermosa, Manhattan or Redondo Beach. To be considered, complete an application – available at www.bchd.org/committee – and submit a resume or curriculum vitae. High school students must complete a youth application and have it signed by three references. All applications are due by noon on Monday, May 6. Committee terms (two years for adults and one year for high school students) begin on July 1. Meetings are generally held quarterly and are scheduled for  evenings.

BCHD is also accepting grant applications from non-profit agencies to support programs that  provide preventive health services in the community. Non-profits that provide physical and/or mental health programs are welcome to apply. The application deadline is April 8. 

BCHD grants support health education and prevention programs including support groups,
health promotion, health maintenance, new approaches to solving problems within the health
field, and safety net programs for vulnerable and underserved populations (e.g., senior
and homeless meal programs). An agency does not need to be located within BCHD service area, but it must demonstrate the ability to make services easily accessible to those residing in
Hermosa, Manhattan and Redondo Beach. District funds must only be spent on the residents of those beach cities.
