Hello to all and a thank you to the many parties who have expressed experience and/or applied.
We hope to have a full cohort ready to launch in late August, 2018. Several are already enrolled and we do have room for a few more participants in the first cohort so do pass the word along for us.

We also want to thank our donors:

2017     The California Endowment, Sierra Health Foundation, Environmental Defense Fund, Sacramento Area Black Caucus and several individual donors.


We are gratefully accepting donations for 2018 and thank those that have already donated this year.
We will be putting up a donor page soon with current and past donor organization names.
