CORE Investments

In 2015, the Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors (BoS) and Santa Cruz City Council (Council) approved a results-based collective impact model named the Collective of Results and Evidence-based (CORE) Investments. CORE is a funding model and a movement to achieve equitable health and well-being in Santa Cruz County. In fiscal year 2022, the BOS and Council awarded approximately $5.9 million in contracts to 41 agencies representing 57 programs that address community needs across the CORE Conditions for Health and Wellbeing.
