MiCHWA has conducted CHW Employer surveys biennially since 2014, with funding support from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. The 2020 Community Health Worker Survey was open from May 1 to June 30, 2020 to all Michigan-based CHW programs that MiCHWA could identify. The final dataset included 53 CHW programs from 47 organizations. Respondents were asked to report data as of March 1, 2020 (prior to pandemic-related changes), except for a small set of COVID-19 specific open-ended questions.
