Independent Sector is joining the Made to Save Coalition for the national We Can Do This Month of Action, organized by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, to ensure that more than 70% of adults are at least partially vaccinated by July 4, 2021.
We are asking you to join us! The IS community is especially positioned to help drive this goal and to increase vaccination access and acceptance rates. The month-long campaign will kick off on June 4 with events across the country.
As a partner organization in the next month, you agree to organize outreach to your specific communities and constituents to provide vaccine information, increase access, continue shifting the narrative, and ensure an equitable end to this pandemic. By signing up as a founding partner (link below), you will receive toolkits and other helpful information to get started.
HHS has put together a guide to help Community-Based Organizations navigate state funding opportunities. The document identifies the appropriate person to reach out to in every state.
Additionally, the White House also announced $250 million to support two funding opportunities for community-based organizations to hire and mobilize community outreach workers in an effort to get more people vaccinated. The funds are available through the Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration. Learn more about these funding opportunities here.
