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.
