RCAHD Seeks Proposals to Support Greater Equity and Access to COVID-19 Vaccines

Roanoke City and Alleghany Health Districts (RCAHD) are seeking proposals from a diverse array of organizations to support its goal of ensuring greater equity and access to COVID-19 vaccines for those disproportionately affected by COVID-19. The Request for Proposal (RFP) from RCAHD is publicly available to any and all who have the capacity and the interest to support the Health District in pursuing its goal. The RFP contains the information needed to understand the purpose of RCAHD’s funding opportunity and how to align your organization’s project ideas with the health district’s goals and requirements. The contents are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent the official views of, nor an endorsement, by Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District/HHS, or the U.S. Government.

As a partner in community health, RCAHD’s objective is to select a number of community-based partners within its health districts, whose jurisdiction includes Alleghany County, Botetourt County, Covington City, Craig County, the City of Roanoke, Roanoke County, and Salem City, who will most effectively support it in achieving its goal, while meeting the requirements outlined in this RFP.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) provided COVID-19 Vaccination Supplement 4 to the Roanoke City and Alleghany Health District through the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), totalling $2,296,964. Forty percent of those funds will be distributed to community partners across both health districts.

The total funding available to community partners:

  • Alleghany Health District: $697,570
    1. Alleghany Health District includes Alleghany County, Botetourt County, the City of Covington, Craig County, Roanoke County, and the City of Salem.
  • Roanoke City Health District: $221,215

A single application can be submitted for either or both health districts. If an application is submitted that encompasses both health districts, the budgets will need to capture costs by health district - Roanoke City Health District and Alleghany Health District (Alleghany County, Botetourt County, Covington City, Craig County, Roanoke County, and Salem City).

For more information, please contact James Card, COVID Grant Manager for the Roanoke City & Alleghany Health Districts, at [email protected].
