COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach Grants and Vaccine Helpline

We have selected six grantees for our new COVID-19 Vaccine Community Outreach grants!  These grants focus on organizing outreach efforts and vaccination events for traditionally under-served groups of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD), including individuals with diverse identities and/or individuals that are underserved, as well as their families and supporters. Below is a list of the grantees and we will make sure to share any events that they are planning. Parent University has already held their first pop-up vaccine clinic this last Saturday in Milwaukee. 

  • Lov Inc to work with Ho Chunk Nation around WI Dells
  • Parent University serving North Milwaukee
  • Padres e Hijos en Accion in Dane County
  • ALAS in South Milwaukee
  • Sokaogon Chippewa Health Department in the Ashland/Bayfield area
  • Emerging Abilities serving communities in the Green Bay area
