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
