Community partners are instrumental in helping to meet the vaccine equity goals we set in May, 2021. Grants are now available to help with the costs of such important work.
Community partners serving Clackamas County, including 501c3 nonprofits and faith-based communities, can apply for grants to help us achieve vaccine equity.
The grants, up to $30,000 per organization, should be used to:
- Focus on communities with the lowest rates of vaccination (people who are Black, indigenous or Latinx; low-income or houseless; have disabilities or mental illness; or who live in rural areas).
- Educate and build vaccine confidence through community outreach and engagement.
- Increase access to vaccination opportunities through hosting customized events or arranging transportation.
Applications can be submitted anytime through October 1, 2021. Applicants must submit a project narrative, budget and proof of insurance.
The grant amounts will depend on the number of applications we receive. The $1.1 million in funds, provided by the Oregon Health Authority, must be spent by December 30, 2021.
Please join us for an informational Zoom session at 2 p.m. on Thursday, July 22, 2021. Our team will be available to answer any questions and provide more information about the grant, application process and more.
