Welcome! Below you will see all of our current opportunities.

What & Why

Baltimore’s historically redlined communities still experience great disparities in critical, health-related resources like food, emergency assistance, transportation, and mental health services. The inaccessibility of these resources drives health disparities, including COVID-19 vaccination rates. The Baltimore City Health Department (BCHD) and Civic Works are awarding mini-grants of up to $25,000 to community-based organizations in Baltimore City to:

  • Increase COVID-19 vaccination access and education in underserved communities.
  • Expand and improve access to health-related resources.
  • Improve the health and well-being of Baltimore City residents.

Applicants that meet the requirements for both the COVID-19 Vaccination and Outreach (COVAX) and Social Determinants of Health (SDoH) mini-grant programs are encouraged to apply to both programs.
