The purpose of the COVID-19 Health Equity Grant (CHEG) is to address COVID-19 and advance health equity through strategies, interventions, and services that address systemic barriers and potentially discriminatory practices that have put certain groups at higher risk for diseases like COVID-19, specifically racial and ethnic minorities and rural communities. 

Application Coming Soon





Funding for CHEG is provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities.
