About:

Through an upcoming single-source award from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to Association of University Centers on Disabilities (AUCD), a selection of up to four (4) centers or programs from the AUCD network members will lead regional hubs to coordinate local and regional COVID-19 vaccine outreach with the disability community as part of a larger effort, Local Vaccine Outreach with the Disability Community. Successful applicants will propose innovative strategies to rapidly share effective message delivery streams and local modalities to reach people with disabilities (including individuals not connected to service delivery systems), their families, and Direct Support Professionals (DSPs), with the overarching goal of boosting COVID-19 vaccination rates in the disability community.

Eligibility:

All AUCD Network members affiliated with a UCEDD, LEND, and/or IDDRC in any state or territory are eligible to seek assistance through this process. AUCD Network members that receive the training grant are also eligible for this opportunity. AUCD Network members that participate in our community of practice on vaccine hesitancy are eligible as well. Areas of low vaccine coverage will be prioritized.

Award:

Up to four (4) centers or programs from the AUCD network membership that serve different regions will be selected to receive an $85,000 flat-fee subaward for a period beginning October 1, 2021 through September 29, 2022.
