DOH intends to award multiple contracts with community groups for COVID-19 outreach
The State Department of Health (DOH) recognizes that community-rooted and community- led organizations and groups are better positioned and equipped to respond to community needs to ensure equitable access to COVID-19 information.
To meet this need, DOH has funded community-driven COVID-19 outreach, communications, and engagement since September 2020. DOH anticipates total funding of approximately $13 million to a minimum of five (5) contracts that respond to both priority populations and intersectionality’s to carry out the community engagement through June 30, 2023.
Please share this opportunity with appropriate organizations in your communities. The Request for Qualifications and Quotations (RFQQ) 26833-0) was revised to extend Bidders Submission of responses to April 7 by 2:00 pm PST.
All proposals must be intentionally centered around priority communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, lead with racial equity, and take an intersectional approach.
