COVID-19 Vaccine Community 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. 

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

We are currently taking applications by invitation. Please contact Health Literacy Director Stan Hudson at for additional information.
