Applications Open: COVID-19 Community Education Initiative to Advance Health Equity Through Education and Outreach

Awards will be made to five community-based organizations that promote outreach and address COVID-19 related educational needs in the community.

NC DHHS has extended the opportunity for organizations to receive batches of the Pixel At-Home COVID tests. This program requires tracking the number of kits received and distributed to the community using the inventory log.
