Message to our Community Members

Dear valued community partners,


We are thrilled to hear that your grant funding will be released soon, and we are equally excited to start the LBTQ Health Equity initiative. We are committed to supporting your data collection and evaluation efforts, and are sympathetic to the many delays in receiving your funding.


We understand how crucial it is for organizations like yours to have the resources to continue serving the LBTQ+ community. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we move forward with the evaluation planning process.


The LBTQ Health Equity Initiative is a critical step towards addressing the systemic health disparities faced by the LBTQ community, including the ways racism, heterosexism and other forms of oppression have created long-standing barriers to our community’s ability to lead healthy, authentic lives. We are eager to work alongside your organization to make this initiative a success, and we are here to support your data collection and evaluation efforts in every way possible. Whether it's providing technical assistance, connecting you with resources, or offering our support, we are committed to helping you measure the significant and meaningful impact of your programs and services.


We look forward to getting to know you during the CDPH launch event, which will be scheduled in the coming weeks. We value this new partnership, and we look forward to working together to advance LBTQ+ health equity. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.


Thank you for your continued dedication to serving the LBTQ+ community.


Best regards,


The UCSB Evaluation Team
