Alexandria Resilience Fund: COVID-19 Vaccine Mini-Grants

The Alexandria Resilience Fund is allocating $25,000 for Mini Grants to assist with COVID-19 vaccine outreach and awareness building activities across communities in Alexandria. Investing in outreach to specific populations is necessary as language, literacy and technology barriers pose a challenge for many community members to understanding the benefits of the vaccine and accessing and navigating the registration and appointment system.  Many of these community members live and work in conditions with fewer options to protect themselves and their families from COVID-19. Many are not able to work from home or isolate within their home. They may not have paid time off from work or affordable, rapid access to testing or medical care. These factors make the COVID-19 vaccination even more of a critical tool in the battle against virus for this population. 
 

We anticipate awarding $1,000 - $3,000 grants, based on the need and request. Click here to apply for the grant.
