This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) supports this work through training and deployment of community health workers (CHWs) and by building and strengthening community resilience to fight COVID-19 through addressing existing health disparities in the population. Goals of this NOFO will be accomplished in three key areas: Component A: CAPACITY BUILDING Component B: IMPLEMENTATION READY Component C: INNOVATION [demonstration projects] The program strategies include integrating CHWs, also known as promotores de salud, coaches, lay health advisors, community health representatives, peer mentors, or peer navigators, into organizations and care teams and strengthening relevant knowledge, roles, and skills by CHWs so they are prepared to successfully engage with existing state and/or local public health-led actions to manage COVID-19 among priority populations within communities.

CDC-RFA-OT21-2103:  National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities

 

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260), which contained the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2021 (P.L. 116-260, Section 2, Division M) provided, in part, funding for strategies to improve testing capabilities and other COVID-19 response purposes in populations at high-risk and underserved, including racial and ethnic minority groups and people living in rural communities. Strategies also include those to develop or identify best practices for states and public health officials to use for contact tracing. To achieve these purposes, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is announcing a non-competitive grant CDC-RFA-OT21-2103 titled “National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities.” This grant will provide funding to state, local, US territorial and freely associated state health departments (or their bona fide agents) to address COVID-19-related health disparities and advance health equity by expanding state, local, US territorial and freely associated state health departments capacity and services to prevent and control COVID-19 infection (or transmission).
