CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Wyoming 211 has been awarded $65,000 from the Addressing Basic Needs and Social Determinants of Health Program, which is part of the COVID-19 Health Disparity Grant Program.

Wyoming has dedicated $8.1 million of federal funding to help eligible entities build up the healthcare infrastructure and address historical inequities in their communities.

The funding is part of Wyoming’s $38.8 million allocation from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for its COVID-19 Health Disparities Grant.

The Align Team manages this portion of the COVID-19 Health Disparities Grant for the Wyoming Department of Health.

Wyoming 211 plans to use this reimbursable grant to develop a mobile search engine app. A mobile app listing all services in the Wyoming 211 database would add another avenue for individuals across Wyoming to access resources. The tool will bridge needs and available services and will provide a unique approach in reaching the greatest number of people.
