Purpose:

The purpose of the program is to improve the health and welfare of California’s critically ill children, by providing a stable and ready source of funds for capital improvement projects for children's hospitals.

Description:

On November 6, 2018, California voters passed Proposition 4, the Children's Hospital Bond Act of 2018. The purpose of the program is to improve the health and welfare of California’s critically ill children, by providing a stable and ready source of funds for capital improvement projects for eligible hospitals. The California Health Facilities Financing Authority (CHFFA) is responsible for administering the program.

Language in Proposition 4 identifies 13 children’s hospitals in California (referred to as “Children’s Hospitals”) as eligible for $1.35 billion in funding.

The 13 Children's Hospitals designated by statute are the same as the 13 hospitals that received grants under the first two Children’s Hospital Programs also administered by CHFFA and enacted by Proposition 61 in 2004 and Proposition 3 in 2008.

The 13 Children’s Hospitals consist of eight private nonprofit Children’s Hospitals and five University of California Children’s Hospitals. Grant awards for each private nonprofit Children’s Hospital was limited to $135 million, less costs of issuance and administrative costs. Grant awards for each University of California Children’s Hospital was limited to $54 million, less costs of issuance and administrative costs.

Costs of issuance are $0.75 per $1,000 of the authorized grant award and administrative costs are $10.00 per $1,000 of the authorized grant award.
