Expanding the Public Health Workforce Partnership Program
“The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) is expanding the Public Health Workforce within the Aging and Disability Networks program by providing funding to help cover the costs of staff to conduct crucial public health activities. Professionals funded through this program may provide a wide range of public health services and supports, including culturally affirmative and linguistically accessible information, assistance with accessing vaccines (including boosters) and connecting to other services, transition and diversion from high-risk congregate settings to community living, health and wellness programs, activities that address social isolation and social determinants of health, and other activities that support the public health and wellbeing of older adults and people with disabilities. CBFL and its community affiliates, HCIL, FBCIL, and BCCIL, will soon begin outreach in many areas to offer support to our community of consumers. Stay tuned for updates on how you can benefit from our efforts!
