COVID-19 Scalable Solutions
In spring 2020, through a competitive application process, 10 organizations received $25,000 to implement a scalable solution to COVID-19 to support individuals most in need within their communities, including those in rural and frontier communities, those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity, families with low incomes, those experiencing SMI and addiction, residential treatment facilities, and immigrants and non-English speaking families. Within two months, each organization implemented their unique solution, and developed plans to disseminate and sustain their efforts. The CoE continues to work closely with each organization to support sustainability and expansion of projects moving forward, as well as disseminate knowledge from these projects to peer provider organizations.
