Please join the White House, Department of the Treasury, and Department of Health and Human Services for a webinar for State, Territorial, Tribal and Local Government Leaders Use of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds and CDC-Immunization Funds for $100 Vaccine Incentives. The webinar will be feature U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy and U.S. Department of Treasury Chief Recovery Officer Jacob Leibenluft, as well as two state and local leaders who have successfully developed their own $100 vaccine incentive programs.
State, Territorial, Tribal, and Local governments can use State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds as well as CDC-Immunization Funds to provide incentives to increase the number of people who choose to get vaccinated, or that motivate people to get vaccinated sooner than they otherwise would have. States ranging from New Mexico to Ohio and Colorado, as well as local governments spanning from New York City to Columbus, Ohio and Gadsden, Alabama are offering similar incentive programs that have helped increase vaccination rates.
On this webinar, the team will discuss the Treasury’s and CDC’s guidance, including the Treasury’s Frequently Asked Questions and Interim Final Rule, and will discuss how recipients may support programs that provide incentives expected to increase the number of people who choose to get vaccinated so long as such costs are reasonably proportional to the expected public health benefit.
