The Wolf Administration and United Way of Pennsylvania launched the Local Innovations in Vaccine Equity in Pennsylvania project (LIVE PA) to administer $4 million in mini-grants to local organizations and $630,000 for faith-based organizations aimed to reduce vaccine hesitancy and ensuring an equitable vaccine distribution throughout the commonwealth. This money is available on a rolling basis until the end of June 2022.
Under this initiative community-based coalitions can apply to their local United Ways for flexible funding and additional vaccine allocations in order to bring vaccinations to the gathering places and even the doorsteps of marginalized and vulnerable populations in areas of disparity and need across the state.
Municipal entities, community-based organizations, and local nonprofit health centers are invited to submit plans to request funding and, if needed, additional vaccine.
You can join us on March 15th to learn more about the grant, the steps involved in applying, and how your organization can be reimbursed!Register
