Long Beach seeks partnership for Latinx Health Collaborative
The city of Long Beach is looking to partner with a community organization to create a Latinx Health Collaborative. This collaborative space will work towards improving health equity and services for Latinx-owned and -serving organizations, using the city’s Mi Vida Cuenta COVID-19 Latinx Health Initiative Report and Workplan as a basis. The initiative aims to tackle health and economic disparities among Latinx residents by focusing on enhancing social well-being, educational opportunities, healthcare services, and collaborations with community-based organizations. The program provides one-time seed funding and is part of the Long Beach Recovery Act, which supports initiatives for those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Further details can be found on the Long Beach Buys website and the Long Beach Recovery Act webpage. Learn more here.
