CCR Recipients

Community Health Workers for COVID Response and Resilient Communities (CCR) (CDC-RFA-DP21-2109) funds 68 organizations across three components. Organizations could apply for either Component A or Component B funding. Organizations that were approved and funded for Component B were eligible to apply for Component C funding.

  • Component A focuses on building capacity for community health worker (CHW) efforts among 31 organizations that have some experience with CHWs and want to build capacity by expanding training and oversight plans.
  • Component B focuses on improving and expanding existing CHW efforts among 37 organizations with about 3 years of experience using CHWs.
  • Component C focuses on developing innovative approaches within 5 organizations to strengthen the use of CHWs through policy, systems, or environmental changes. 

Comprehensive workplans that are tailored by and for each community will guide CHW efforts. While the specifics of implementation will differ by area and funding, each community will use three key strategies, which together can help end the COVID-19 pandemic and move toward health equity:

train

Train CHWs with the knowledge, roles, and skills to support the COVID-19 public health response to manage outbreaks and prevent community spread.

deploy

Deploy CHWs to support the COVID-19 public health response to manage outbreaks and prevent the spread of COVID-19 among priority populations in communities.

engage

Engage CHWs to help build and strengthen community resilience to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 by improving the overall health of priority populations in communities.
