NACHW is a strategic partner with the Morehouse School of Medicine National COVID-19 Resiliency Network (NCRN), an initiative to coordinate a strategic and structured national network of national, state/territorial/tribal and local public and community-based organizations that will mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on racial and ethnic minority, and rural populations. This work is supported in whole by a $40 million award from the U.S. Department of Human and Health Services Office of Minority Health as part of the National Infrastructure for Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 within Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities (NIMIC).
NACHW is partnering with Morehouse to connect them with Community Health Workers in order to develop culturally appropriate strategies of disseminating information to these vulnerable communities and find out what resources are most necessary in each community to address the physical and social ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Report: An Environmental Scan to Inform CHW Strategies Within the Morehouse NCRN
An Environmental Scan to Inform Community Health Worker Strategies within the Morehouse National COVID-19 Resiliency Network was developed by the National Association of Community Health Workers (NACHW) and a consultant from the Community Health Acceleration Partnership (CHAP) to examine key factors within the United States landscape that create challenges or opportunities to integrate the CHW workforce into COVID-19 responses. The methods, participants and geographic locations engaged in the development of the report are filtered by the Morehouse NCRN Five Priority Communities impacted by COVID-19.
