City of Norwalk

2021 - $100,000

This funding will support five community health workers in supporting Norwalk’s COVID-19 response. In Norwalk, five community health workers employed by Family & Children’s Agency help the city’s health department with contact tracing, connecting residents to community resources, education, and outreach related to COVID-19. Their work includes outreach at laundromats, barber shops, corner stores, and other community locations; working with faith leaders to answer questions and conduct education sessions; supporting staff at vaccine clinics; and assisting with the health department’s vaccine assist phone line. This grant to the City of Norwalk will support their work through July 31.
