Cooperative agreements to USA and territories private and public organizations and tribes to advance health equity and address Coronavirus (COVID-19)-related disparities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended to build upon existing, national vaccine education and outreach efforts while tailoring vaccine confidence approaches to meet the unique needs of the community.
The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is accepting applications for the fiscal year (FY) 2022 Community-Based Workforce to Build COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence. The purpose of this program is to address COVID-19 related health disparities and advance health equity by mobilizing community outreach workers to 1). Strengthen vaccine confidence; 2). Provide further information and education with respect to vaccines; and 3). Improve rates of vaccination throughout the United States, including its territories and possessions.
The purpose of the program is to strengthen vaccine confidence, provide further information and education on the vaccines and improve rates of vaccination across the country. This program will mobilize community outreach workers, which includes community health workers, patient navigators and social support specialists to the most vulnerable and medically underserved communities, including racial and ethnic minority groups. Community outreach workers will educate, and assist individuals in receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. This includes activities such as reaching out directly to community members to educate them about the vaccine, assisting individuals in making a vaccine appointment, providing resources (e.g. convenient vaccine locations, information for individuals impacted by COVID-19 and its long-term health effects), and assisting individuals with transportation or other needs to get to their vaccine appointments. Specifically, the program will aim to build vaccine confidence in order to get people vaccinated in a quick and efficient manner. HRSA will fund applicants that have demonstrated experience and expertise in implementing public health programs across broad geographic areas.
High Priority States include:
Applicants may propose to serve additional states, territories and possessions beyond these if the data demonstrates need; specifically those areas with low vaccination rates and/or high vaccine hesitancy rates.
