MA Vaccine Equity Initiative Funds awarded to Cambridge Health Alliance



The Baker-Polito Administration today announced $13.5 million to support community organizations working in the cities and towns hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic as part of the Massachusetts Vaccine Equity Initiative to increase awareness, acceptance and access to the COVID-19 vaccine. These latest grants are part of the Administration’s investment of more than $46.5 million to address vaccine hesitancy.

The Vaccine Equity Initiative aims to support community organizations working in the cities and towns hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. The funding goes towards increasing awareness and expanding access to the COVID-19 vaccine.

$10.65 million was given to launch the Massachusetts Community Health Workers for Resilient Communities (MA CRC) program. 10 organizations in 9 priority communities have been awarded three-year grants to support community health workers in clinical care settings and support local boards of health in increasing COVID-19 vaccination efforts including Cambridge Health Alliance's Malden Care Center.


CHA's Malden location is one of many organizations doing important work in communities hard hit by the pandemic and I am grateful for their efforts to keep our city safe and healthy. Congratulations!
