All In Washington’s Vaccine Equity Initiative was established in February 2021 in response to inequitable vaccine distribution among communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. With the support of generous donors, we have streamlined funds to community-based organizations that can conduct linguistically and culturally-specific vaccine education and outreach.
For Round 4, we are awarding a total of $2,172,000 to 89 community-based organizations across the state, bringing the cumulative awards for the Vaccine Equity Initiative to over $5.9M. Our review process, once again, prioritized organizations serving Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, as well as immigrants, refugees, agricultural workers, and people facing homelessness given the immense impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on these populations and the lower rates of vaccination. Our process also prioritized funding in counties with lower overall vaccination rates.
Thank you to our donors and grantees for increasing vaccine access and education in Washington. This initiative’s success is owed to every Washingtonian who has contributed, mobilized resources, and led relief efforts.
