Funding to address Covid-19 vaccine inequalities

Applications are now closed

Funding has been made available by Public Health Hertfordshire from the Contain Outbreak Management Funding (COMF) to support local groups and organisations to address Covid-19 vaccine inequalities and to encourage further take-up, across all age groups.
Grants of up to £5,000 are available to support any work that could lead to further vaccine take-up and an increase in vaccination rates across Hertfordshire. This could include tailored communications such as translation services, transport, website modifications, information sharing events and befriending services – but we are open to any other ideas that will meet these aims.

We are keen that the funding supports areas of deprivation and diverse ethnicities where we know Covid-19 has had a significant impact.

Funding will be awarded at the end of August 2021 and must be spent fully by 31 March 2022.

For more information:

  • For further information regarding supporting ethnic minorities, please see the ‘Ethnic Minorities – vaccine inequalities framework’ guidance below.

  • The government has also published vaccine inequalities guidance which can be found here.
