Governor Laura Kelly Announces New Grant Program for Organizations Promoting Health Equity, Vaccinations

To bolster local organizations supporting health equity in communities across Kansas, Governor Laura Kelly announced the “Increase the Reach” Grant Initiative. The program specifically aims to reach groups that have been socially marginalized and those experiencing low vaccination rates, including both racial and ethnic minority populations as well as rural communities, and empower community organizations promoting equitable access to the COVID-19 vaccine for all Kansans. The grants will enable these organizations to expand access to vaccines and increase vaccine uptake among those who are unvaccinated.
