The Salinas Valley Health Professions Pathway Partnership (SVHPPP) is one of several investments being supported by The California Endowment’s “Building Healthy Communities” (BHC) program—a 10-year community-based change initiative working in 14 communities across the state. The SVHPPP was funded initially through the strategies outlined in the BHC Plan for East Salinas, which called for equitable outcomes for East Salinas. Hartnell College, the pathway’s anchor organization, is a long-time BHC partner and a key champion of moving toward a new narrative of equity in education for all, including low-income neighborhoods and communities of color.
