On May 4, 2021, the White House announced $250 million to support two funding opportunities for community-based organizations to hire and mobilize community outreach workers. Today, HRSA is pleased to announce the availability of the second notice of funding opportunity announcement (NOFO) titled Community-Based Workforce to Increase COVID-19 Vaccine Access.
The purpose of the program is to support communities as they establish, expand, and sustain a public health workforce to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. This includes the hiring of community outreach workers, which includes community health workers, patients navigators, and social support specialists, to educate and assist individuals in accessing and receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.
Eligible applicants for this NOFO include nonprofit private or public organizations, including local and/or regional community-based organizations (CBOs) with demonstrated experience in implementing public health programs, particularly in medically underserved areas. This includes Tribes and Tribal organizations.
HRSA will hold a technical assistance webinar for applicants on Tuesday May 25th, 2021, from 3pm – 4pm CST | 4pm – 5pm EST. The webinar will also be recorded and a link to the recording will be posted on Grants.gov in the “Related Documents” tab for this funding opportunity a few days after the live webinar.
