The COVID-19 Outreach & Engagement Mini Grants

Thanks to the Alexandria Resilience Fund, Alexandria nonprofits are creatively helping Alexandrians get vaccinated.  To date, 12 nonprofits have received $30,000 in funding to support a variety of outreach efforts.  For example, African Communities Together has engaged tenant leaders to serve as vaccine ambassadors at Southern Towers, an apartment complex in the West End neighborhood.  Senior Services is collaborating with the Alexandria Health Department to reach seniors and coordinate vaccination scheduling and transportation.  And, Wesley Housing is offering informational seminars and incentives to residents that register for the vaccine.

These are a just a few of the ways community organizations are serving as trusted spokespeople and champions for the COVID vaccine.  Review the full list of grantees here.

It’s not too late to apply for funding. The COVID-19 Outreach & Engagement Mini Grants recognize the role that community organizations play when it comes to public health.  Read more about the mini grants here.
