Since the start of COVID, the presence of health disparities has reached new depths. Launched in August 2021, CDC’s Community Health Workers for COVID Response and Resilient Communities (CCR) initiative provides financial support and technical assistance (TA) to 68 states, territories, urban Indian health organizations, tribal nations, organizations, and health service providers. This program works with CHWs to provide them with the support they need to best care for the communities they serve.
