FLPPS was awarded $1 million to support regional community-based efforts to increase COVID-19 vaccinations in underserved communities: “Local Community-Based Workforce to Increase COVID-19 Access”. The funding was made available by the American Rescue Plan and is being distributed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, through the Health Resources and Services Administration.

The grant provides program funding to establish, expand, and sustain a public health workforce to prevent, prepare for, and respond to COVID-19. It specifically relates to mobilizing community health workers and outreach workers to educate and assist individuals in accessing and receiving COVID-19 vaccinations.

The FLPPS grant is part of $121 million in American Rescue Plan funding to 127 agencies around the country.

“This grant will support trusted voices in local communities in sharing information about vaccines, building vaccine confidence, and addressing barriers to vaccination for individuals in underserved communities,” said Carol Tegas, Executive Director of FLPPS.

“I am excited to see ‘equity in action’ through this partnership with FLPPS, who recognizes the importance of lived experience and elevating the parent and patient voice to bring change across our health and behavioral health systems.”

“The Finger Lakes IPA, a partnership of the region’s community health centers, six behavioral health organizations, and the S2AY Rural Health Network, is very excited to be a part of this important initiative by FLPPS to support the critical need for access to developmental screenings for young children in our rural communities. This program will give us the ability to provide access to services that are often not available due to geographic and other barriers to care experienced by our patients.”

“By expanding our Person In Crisis teams to include certified peer specialists, we will be able to assist even more of our residents in need in a humane and compassionate manner. In addition, by assisting residents in this new way, we are expecting that there will be a reduced number of people calling the PIC team because they are getting connected to the services they need.”

“The key to the success of this menu of services is our ability to have a two-way dialogue with doctors and other medical professionals about both health and social support needs at home. We’ve proven this model can improve patient outcomes and reduce unnecessary ED visits and hospitalizations, and that’s a win for everyone. It also reduces both physician and patient/family caregiver frustrations.”

Ann Marie Cook, President and CEO of Lifespan
