Description:The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act of 2020 allocated funds to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to states, localities, territories, tribes, tribal organizations, urban Indian health organizations, or health service providers to tribes. CDC announces the availability of funds to achieve the goal of the CARES Act in protecting the American people from the public health impacts of COVID-19. This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) supports this work through training and deployment of community health workers (CHWs) and by building and strengthening community resilience to fight COVID-19 through addressing existing health disparities in the population. Goals of this NOFO will be accomplished in three key areas: Component A: CAPACITY BUILDING Component B: IMPLEMENTATION READY Component C: INNOVATION [demonstration projects] The program strategies include integrating CHWs, also known as promotores de salud, coaches, lay health advisors, community health representatives, peer mentors, or peer navigators, into organizations and care teams and strengthening relevant knowledge, roles, and skills by CHWs so they are prepared to successfully engage with existing state and/or local public health-led actions to manage COVID-19 among priority populations within communities.
