San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente is making $5.5 million in grants to seven San Francisco nonprofits that work with “at-risk populations,” the Oakland-based health care giant and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee announced Wednesday morning. That total includes a $3 million grant to HOPE SF, a city-backed initiative to revitalize distressed public housing sites. The program’s goal is to transform the often-dangerous public housing sites “into mixed-income communities without displacing existing residents,” officials said.
