Funding Opportunity Announcement Town Hall: Engaging CBOs in the COVID-19 Response


4:30 - 5:30 pm

Engaging Local Community Based Organizations (CBOs) in Developing Cultural Humility Training Tools for Contact Investigators and Contact Tracers for the COVID-19 Response in California

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in California, the UCSF Pandemic Initiative for Equity and Inclusion (UPIEA), in partnership with UCLA and the California Department of Public Health, has implemented a training curriculum to equip and rapidly mobilize a work force of contact tracers and case investigators (the ‘Virtual Training Academy’ [VTA]).

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to engage community based organizations (CBOs) to develop supplemental training materials to ensure that contact tracers trained at the VTA are equipped to deliver culturally sensitive care that is responsive to the needs and perspectives of communities most affected by COVID-19 in California

The Town Hall will provide an opportunity to share more information on California’s contact tracing program, the objectives of the supplemental training program in cultural humility, and to review in detail the application process, including a Q&A session.
