CalHyPAC is the California Dental Hygienists’ Association’s Political Action Committee, a separate entity from the CDHA. This Committee was created in 1982 and is a voluntary political advocacy committee.
The CalHyPAC committee uses the PAC funds to support legislative fundraisers for current California State Senators and Assembly Members or candidates who are running for California legislative office.
A small small portion of the funds are used for administrative costs, such as professional accountant services for required reporting of financial transactions. All PACS are heavily regulated by the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
Dental Hygiene Associates, Inc. (DHAI) is the non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation for CDHA; all donations are tax deductible.
The most current objective is raising funds for dental hygiene student scholarships. DHAI plans to fund future scholarships for dental hygienists to advance their educational goals. DHAI also serves as a grant administrator for hygienists and components.
