Connecting Neighbors to COVID Resources
Watch a video about this winning project from a 2020 AARP Community Challenge grantee
LOCATION: New Castle County, Delaware
GRANTEE: Latin American Community Center
As soon as the pandemic hit, the Latin American Community Center knew it needed to begin outreach efforts to ensure that Delaware’s Latino communities, which include many essential workers, received information about staying safe. Pop-up testing and vaccination sites reached many in the community. The AARP Community Challenge grant also helped with programs connecting residents to food and rent or mortgage relief. This video features health workers talking about how the plan came together.
The AARP Community Challenge funds "quick-action" projects that build momentum for local change to improve livability for people of all ages.
