The Office of Minority Health (OMH) has announced a new funding opportunity: Advancing Health Literacy to Enhance Equitable Community Responses to COVID-19. This initiative seeks applications for projects to demonstrate the effectiveness of local government implementation of evidence-based health literacy strategies that are culturally appropriate to enhance COVID-19 testing, contact tracing and/or other mitigation measures (e.g., public health prevention practices and vaccination) in racial and ethnic minority populations and other socially vulnerable populations, including racial and ethnic minority rural communities. Applicant eligibility is limited to localities (e.g., cities, counties, parishes, or other similar subdivisions). OMH encourages applicants to partner with a Minority Serving Institution for quality improvement activities and program evaluation.
The Federal Grants website provides a variety of tools and tips to get you started.
A technical assistance webinar for interested applicants will be held on Wednesday, March 17 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Register to attend the webinar. A recording of the webinar will be made available.
