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.
