Vaccinating

COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence

Rural Health Projects, Inc./Northwest Area Health Education Center (NwAHEC), has been awarded a $1 million dollar grant as part of a targeted campaign to support and empower local trusted voices within communities to help encourage vaccination, protect more people and save lives. This funding was made available by the American Rescue Plan and is being distributed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), through the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA).

As part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biden-Harris Administration is providing $121 million to support the work of trusted community-based efforts to increase vaccinations in underserved communities. These awards will go to community-based organizations across the country that are working in their communities to build vaccine confidence, share factual information about vaccines, and answer people's questions about getting vaccinated. This investment plus another $125 awarded in July, is part of the Administration's commitment to establish, expand and sustain community-based efforts to mobilize community outreach workers, community health workers, patient navigators, social support specialists and others to increase vaccinations.
