COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach Subawards
This funding supports community organizations as they address barriers to and promote acceptance of vaccination for COVID-19. Especially in those communities where accessing medical care can be challenging, and people have had historical mistrust of the medical community and/or vaccines.
In this post-emergency era of the pandemic, communities are expressing fatigue having conversations about vaccination and boosters. This funding supports organizations who recognize this fatigue and are motivated to educate communities about the effectiveness of vaccines and boosters.
Purpose: To bring equity to the vaccination process, by reaching out to counties and communities with low vaccination rates in Wisconsin.
Eligibility: Applicants must be based in Wisconsin, conduct their proposed community outreach work in Wisconsin, and be one of the following:
- Local or tribal government entities
- Nonprofit entities certified as a 501(c)(3) by the federal Internal Revenue Service
- Projects sponsored by another 501(c)(3) organization
- Organizations that are new and have not done this work under the direction of Wisconsin Health Literacy before.
