CDC is partnering with four national-level organizations to support up to 300 community-based organizations across the nation to increase vaccination coverage and confidence in communities of color.
The Vaccine Equity and Access Program, a national program that supports community-based organizations led by and working with people of color to facilitate information about, and access to, vaccines as part of a broader effort to reduce vaccination disparities, specifically in influenza and COVID-19 vaccination rates.
This funding opportunity – with potential to dedicate up to $200M over five years to increase COVID-19 and influenza vaccination coverage among adults in racial and ethnic groups – marks a milestone in the agency’s history, as a pioneering approach for working with national partners to fund and directly support as many as 300 CBOs across the nation.
The four funded partners have published RFPs for CBOs. The RFP links to each partner organization are listed below.
- CDC Foundation
- Urban Institute
- Community Catalyst
- The Rockefeller Foundation – RF Catalytic Capital Inc.: Program RFP link in progress
