Vaccine Equity

 

Together We Protect – Colorado’s COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Fund supports organizations working in communities disproportionately affected by COVID-19 to ensure that people who face systemic barriers have the most appropriate and accessible information about the COVID-19 vaccine and can access the vaccine through low-barrier opportunities.

En español

Coloradans who live daily without access to critical services and opportunities due to race and/or their socioeconomic status have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 in Colorado. These same communities are likely to face increased challenges accessing the COVID-19 vaccine. Ensuring all individuals have access to the vaccine and achieving a high vaccination rate across all Colorado communities will be necessary to mitigate the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic and prevent widening disparities going forward.

Together We Protect – Colorado’s COVID-19 Vaccine Equity Fund supports Colorado community-based organizations, working in partnership with state-contracted vaccine providers, to provide culturally relevant outreach, education, and support to ensure communities who face systemic barriers have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Grants ranging from $10,000 to $100,000 will be awarded to applicants from across Colorado.
