Headlines – Anne Arundel County Health Department Announces Awards for Health Ambassadors Program

Anne Arundel County Community Action Agency – $58,000

“In our county, equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine is a high priority,” said Anne Arundel County Health Officer Nilesh Kalyanaraman, M.D.  “Our data shows that COVID-19 has had a disproportionate impact on Black, Hispanic, low income and older individuals.”  The awards are funded through the COVID Mass Vaccination CARES Initiative of the Maryland Department of Health, Prevention and Health Promotion Administration. A total of $707,575 will be awarded to nine community-based organizations that are working to ensure equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The organizations receiving awards are listed below: “The communities in our county with the lowest vaccination rates are the ones that have been most impacted by COVID-19,” County Executive Steuart Pittman said. “The organizations receiving these grants will canvass neighborhoods, talk to residents directly, and fill our vaccination appointments. That’s how our communities will recover from this pandemic.”

Funds will be used to hire and train students to serve as part-time health ambassadors. Funds will also help expand existing and ongoing Hispanic/Latino community engagement work, with a focus on Annapolis, Brooklyn Park, Glen Burnie, Laurel and surrounding ZIP codes. CASA de Maryland, Inc. (Anne Arundel County Chapter) – $98,000

Funds will be used to reach out to South County community services, including food banks, baby banks, libraries, grocery stores and events, to educate community members about the safety and importance of COVID-19 vaccinations.
