SABE CDC Mini-Grant State Projects 2022

Self Advocates Becoming Empowered was asked to help the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to get information to our members about COVID-19 Vaccines.  Priorities were states who had lower vaccination rates and a higher incidence of current outbreaks.
SABE and our partners wanted to make sure people with disabilities are getting the facts about the virus in their state.  We invited self-advocacy groups or organizations to apply for a mini-grant for a COVID Vaccine Outreach Project for their state.

Each project received $4,000 for the resources they created. Here are links to the completed projects.
