California COVID-19 Community Health and Workplace Outreach Project

More than $19 million awarded to 112 community-based organizations

The Center at Sierra Health Foundation is partnering with the California Department of Social Services and the Labor and Workforce Development Agency to provide funding for community-based organizations throughout California to support outreach to mitigate the health consequences of COVID-19 on disproportionately impacted populations and communities. Community-based organizations have been providing critical services and information to Californians during the pandemic and are key partners in continuing to provide education and outreach across the state.

California COVID-19 Community Health Project partner organizations are conducting culturally relevant education and outreach activities, and disseminating COVID-19 information to communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

California COVID-19 Workplace Outreach Project partner organizations are conducting outreach activities to educate workers and employers in high-risk industries, such as the food and agriculture sectors, on how to minimize the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace.
