These include racial and ethnic minority groups and people living in rural communities. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the grants look to reduce COVID-19-related health disparities, and improve state, local, U.S. territorial and freely associated state health department capacity and services to prevent and control COVID-19 infection.
“These grants demonstrate our steadfast commitment to keeping equity at the center of everything we do. They are an important step in our unwavering efforts to strengthen our communities’ readiness for public health emergencies, and to helping everyone in America have equal opportunities for health,” said CDC Director Rochelle Walensky. They say the investment by the CDC is the agency’s largest investment to date to help improve health equity in the United States.
