The program has two funding areas:

  1. Component A: Healthy Communities: Community-based programs and services that address the root causes of COVID-19 disparities and address the social determinants of health
  2. Component B: Vaccine Equity: Programs that increase equitable vaccine access and confidence through education, outreach, and partnerships

Applicants must be working to directly address racial/ethnic COVID-19 disparities and/or addressing social determinants of health in communities that experience COVID-19 disparities.
