Community Engagement Initiative of the Test and Trace Corps.

The City is now soliciting proposals for the new Community Engagement Initiative of the Test and Trace Corps.

The NYC Test and Trace Corps ("Test & Trace"), led by NYC Health + Hospitals in partnership with DOHMH, and other City agencies, is a major component of the City's effort to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City currently seeks Community-Based Organizations (CBOs), including Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs), to promote Test & Trace. This initiative will focus on ensuring that communities have direct access to COVID-19-related information and services that are accessible, culturally and linguistically responsive, and trauma- and resilience-informed. CBOs and FBOs situated in or serving communities most impacted by COVID-19 are encouraged to apply.

Activities will include conducting outreach and public education regarding testing and tracing, the benefits of wearing a mask, physical distancing, COVID-19 prevention, and safe re-opening practices. Proposals should demonstrate how your organization is able to effectively communicate to your targeted community reliable information about Test & Trace and the core public health guidance critical to stopping the continued spread of COVID-19.
