Strengthen vaccine awareness in your community with a COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach Grant

Application deadline: Wednesday, May 26, 2021

The Lake County COVID-19 Vaccine Outreach Grant will provide microgrants of up to $1,500 to support coordinated campaigns to increase education and promotion around COVID-19 vaccination. Awarded projects must focus on specific programs and initiatives intended to increase COVID-19 vaccine access, acceptance, and uptake among Lake County, Indiana residents.

Priority will be given to projects that prioritize:

  • Racial and ethnic minority communities

Communities that are seeing low vaccination turnout, as identified by Indiana Department of Health data.

Legacy Foundation invites proposals from 501(c)3 organizations, including municipalities, schools, educational institutions, and faith-based organizations. 

Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, public education, marketing campaigns, special events, and mobilizing, specifically aimed at increasing COVID-19 vaccine access, acceptance, and uptake. Creative and innovative ideas are encouraged, especially those used to engage traditionally hard-to-reach populations, or using new and culturally relevant outreach and education methods.

Be a trusted messenger about the COVID-19 vaccine

You do not have to be a medical expert to make an impact. It's been shown that people who know someone who has already been vaccinated are more likely to say they'll get vaccinated themselves. Share your personal story to encourage your friends, family, and wider community to get vaccinated.
