In reflecting upon 2021, I do so with mixed emotions. There is a tension between the global impact of COVID 19 and a period of unparalleled growth for Community-Campus Partnerships for Health During what has now been a two year pandemic, CCPH has stepped forward as an organization committed to authentic partnerships to address the full effects of health inequities

I am eternally optimistic that we will overcome this challenge and take with us the invaluable lessons we captured in our minds and hearts In the spirit of partnerships, Al Richmond (He/Him) | Executive Director LETTER TO OUR COMMUNITY


And to those of you on the frontline of public and community health – thank you for your resolve to serve others. Your sustained commitment to others will be remembered as saving the lives of many. I also acknowledge our collective hurt and pain for the deaths, ongoing pain, and trauma of this season.

CCPH’s work in 2021 reflects years of practice and scholarship in the science and art of community engagement. The work required our full attention to social justice and health equity And yet, there were times when I felt that we were not doing enough This report highlights both authentic partnerships and a commitment to the communities we touch. It also reflects our deepest thanks to our many partners who have walked alongside us as we extend the reach of CCPH.


As COVID 19 spread among communities around the world, CCPH responded by harnessing the power of partnerships to further promote health equity and social justice. WORK IN 2021



Our team grew to 7 full-time staff members and 11 consultants This growth allowed us to expand our capacity and engagement in promoting health equity and social justice We continued our efforts to combat COVID-19 by partnering with 6 academic institutions, 7 state and national organizations, 1 foundation, and over 90 community based organizations. We leveraged our nearly 25 years of experience to lead and continue supporting 12 community engaged and research focused projects. We shared our knowledge and provided a deeper understanding of the work being done by facilitating 22 webinars, trainings, and listening sessions. We facilitated the distribution of over $1.8 million in grants and awards to 53 community based organizations across the country.

Say Yes! Covid Test (SYCT) was a pilot project that provided free at home COVID 19 tests for regular testing in rural, minority communities. CCPH partnered with lead community partners and local community based organizations to increase capacity and build local coalitions to distribute the test kits and ensure that residents tested themselves for the virus. Over 1.75 million COVID 19 home tests distributed Say Yes! COVID Test 100+ Rural, Faith Based, and CBOs participated 300,000+ Residents participated in North Carolina & Tennessee 11


You and Me COVID Free (YMCF) was a federally funded program designed to provide free COVID 19 tests to determine if at home testing would help to slow the spread of the virus among vulnerable populations. CCPH utilized best practices and lessons learned from Say Yes! COVID Test to ensure successful distribution of the test kits. Specifically, techniques in logistics, communications and marketing were implemented to address challenges that existed prior to the YMCF project. 400,000+ COVID 19 tests distributed in Merced County 70,000+ Households received COVID 19 testing kits 90 Community partners participated 13 Receiving the test kits in a community that is rural and has low vaccination rates has been invaluable for Merced County. Not a day passed that a community didn’t respond or comment that the program itself would save lives Merced County Field Notes


The aim of the Coordination and Data Collection Center (CDCC) is to provide education, training, implementation guidance, and coordination to support the success of RADx UP projects As a co lead of the RADx UP CDCC Community Engagement Core, CCPH’s role has been to provide vision, leadership, and strategy around increasing community engagement both internally across the CDCC Cores and externally among the RADx UP projects. $1.7 Million awarded to community led projects Coordination and Data Collection Center 250+ Individuals participated in CCPH trainings 52 Project consultations with CCPH team from August December 15
