Interact for Health is working with community partners to support COVID-19 vaccination efforts and outreach in our 20-county region and has $350,000 in funding available to support projects in the region.
Interact for Health is accepting requests for projects focused on one or more of the following:
  • Access: These projects address why people aren’t able to get the vaccine.
  • Acceptance: These projects address groups of people who are hesitant to get vaccinated or don’t feel a sense of urgency.
  • Operational support: These projects address actual vaccine administration.
Applicants must be a public or private nonprofit or governmental organization that provides services in at least one county in Interact for Health's 20-county service area. 
To request funding for your organization's COVID-19 vaccination efforts, complete this brief online form. For immediate consideration, submit your request by noon Tuesday, May 25. First round applicants will be notified by Friday, May 28. Additional applications will be considered on a rolling basis until funds are expended with applications being pulled for review weekly on Tuesdays and notifications by Fridays.
