The Montana Department of Public Health and Human Services (DPHHS) has received funding in a two-year grant from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to Address Health Disparities and Advance Health Equity Among Populations that are at High-Risk and Underserved. The funding is part of the federal COVID-19 response under the American Rescue Plan. 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.
