Due Oct. 14: Engaging the Arts to Build Vaccine Confidence
The CDC Foundation is seeking applications from arts and culture organizations interested in improving vaccine confidence and acceptance through their chosen art form(s) in communities with low COVID vaccination rates. The CDC Foundation will provide grants up to $75,000 each to an estimated 30 organizations that have a proven track record of successfully creating impactful, educational work. Learn more.
NRC-RIM has developed and curated a collection of resources to support local health departments and community-based organizations working with refugee, immigrant, and migrant (RIM) communities that have been disproportionately affected by COVID -19.
When you apply for funding, consider using our resources in your proposed approach. Contact us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Promising practices are strategies, approaches, or programs that have anecdotally shown to have a positive impact in some local settings. NRC-RIM has collected nearly 40 promising practices through one-on-one interviews with public health professionals actively engaged in COVID-19 response among RIM communities.
Toolkits contain practical guides, checklists, and promising practices relevant to each toolkit topic. All materials were curated specifically to support health departments with COVID-19 response among RIM communities:
Get the Facts and Get Vaccinated are COVID-19 vaccination campaigns that include fact sheets, posters, social media assets, and PSAs translated into 40+ languages; easy to use and customizable templates allow health departments and other organizations to add their own logos. For a more targeted campaign, consider Vaccination Is.
In partnership with IDEO.org and leaders from refugee and immigrant communities, NRC-RIM developed community-led COVID-19 campaigns about COVID-19 vaccines and contact tracing; NRC-RIM offers an interactive guidebook for health departments to build new campaigns in partnerships with communities.
