One Health awarded $583k in Covid Health Disparities Grant funds

One Health has been awarded $583,547 from the Covid-19 Health Disparities Grant Programs.  

Wyoming has dedicated $8.1 million in federal funding to help eligible entities build up the health care infrastructure and address historical inequities in their communities.  The funding is part of Wyoming’s $38.8 million allocation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for its COVID-19 Health Disparities Grant.  The Align Team manages this portion of the COVID-19 Health Disparities Grant for the Wyoming Department of Health. 

One Health plans to use this reimbursable grant to update flooring and paint at our Lovell site, produce an educational campaign surrounding services available to all community members of the Bighorn Basin regardless of their ability to pay and assist in the architectural design of the new clinic space in Powell.
