The Health Resources and Services Administration today awarded nine community-based organizations a portion of $77 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding to build vaccine confidence and bolster COVID-19 vaccinations in hard-hit, high-risk communities. The agency also will accept applications through Dec. 10 from health care and other community-based organizations for up to $10 million each to strengthen COVID-19 vaccine confidence and improve vaccination rates in vulnerable or medically underserved communities. HRSA expects to make about seven awards.
 
“Today’s investments are part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s continued efforts to leverage trusted local messengers and support community-based efforts to vaccinate more Americans against COVID-19,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra.
