Funding Opportunity: Monkeypox Information Outreach Award

Posted by on September 23rd, 2022 Posted in: Blog

The Monkeypox Information Outreach Award will provide funding to organizations for the purpose of providing communities most at risk for monkeypox with high quality information about monkeypox. The award is intended to increase health equity through outreach and engagement in Region 6. The Period of Performance is December 1, 2022 – April 30, 2023, and the Application Deadline is October 21, 2022, 5:00 pm CDT. A minimum of three awards in the amount of  $5,000 will be funded.

Potential Project Ideas

Because of the time sensitive nature of this health information outreach and the short performance period, we recommend the following project ideas:

  • A health department sends public health workers to LGBTQ bars and community centers to distribute and post flyers or printed information about monkeypox from MedlinePlus and/or CDC. Alternatively, the health department creates original flyers containing a QR code that links to monkeypox information online from CDC and/or MedlinePlus. Information covered might include prevention, safer sex practices, signs & symptoms, transmission, testing, treatment, and/or vaccines.
  • A library or community organization partners with a health department to offer flyers or printed information about monkeypox and the monkeypox vaccine at vaccine clinics. The flyers and information come from MedlinePlus and/or CDC.
  • Award recipient creates QR code stickers for condom packages. The QR code links to monkeypox information from MedlinePlus and/or CDC. Award recipient distributes stickered condom packages for focused disease prevention and educational awareness at LGBTQ bars, community centers, health clinics, etc.
  • A community organization, health department, or clinic creates short videos explaining what monkeypox is, how it does and doesn’t spread, what to do if you have monkeypox, and what to expect with the monkeypox vaccine. The video is distributed via social media, along with links to more information about monkeypox from MedlinePlus and/or CDC.

Full application and eligibility information can be found here.
