Graphic Designer to Support Leveraging Centers for Independent Living (CILs) to Increase Vaccines for People with Disabilities
The CDC Foundation was awarded a federal grant from the CDC to implement Leveraging Centers for Independent Living (CILs) to Increase Vaccines for People with Disabilities. The aim of this project is to increase uptake of COVID-19 vaccinations in individuals with disabilities by engaging with local level CILs that have not received federal funding to assist in implementing COVID-19 vaccine activities including, but not necessarily limited to, transportation, vaccine clinics, and providing feedback on a national hotline.

To address the needs of people with disabilities during the COVID-19 pandemic and other public health emergencies, collaboration between state and local health departments (SLHDs) and CILs is crucial. As such, an output of this project is a Partnership Guide for CILs and SLHDs to foster collaboration that will be created by CDC Foundation staff in collaboration with project contractors and stakeholders. Through this Request for Proposals (RFPs), the CDC Foundation seeks to enter into a contractual agreement with a successful bidder and select a suitable contractor to create graphics and format the Partnership Guide, as well as ensure that the final PDF is accessible to people with disabilities.
