As a program of the non-profit Public Health Institute, Tracking California is funded through grants and contracts from a variety of federal, state and private sources. We frequently provide technical assistance or data analysis services through smaller contracts to research institutes and community organizations. 

Core infrastructure for the program is funded through cooperative agreements with the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) National Environmental Health Tracking Program. Although we are physically located within the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), we do not receive any direct funding from the CDPH.

Other funders have included:

National Institutes of Health, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; CDC Foundation; Pew Charitable Trusts; Parkinson's Disease Foundation; Coalition for Clean Air; NCIRE - Northern California Institute for Research and Education; Children's Hospital and Research Center at Oakland; University of Washington; Leland Stanford Jr University; Pesticide Research Institute; California Breast Cancer Research Program; Border Environmental Cooperation Commission; University of California, Berkeley; Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice; Energy Foundation; University of Southern California; University of California, Davis; Natural Resources Defense Council; California Environmental Protection Agency.

We are available to provide assistance with research, data linkage, data visualization and other projects on a contract basis. For partners who are grant funded, often it is best to discuss your potential needs before you apply for funding, so that our services can be included in your application.
