Community Health Worker and Paraprofessional Training Program (HRSA-22-124)
Purpose: The Community Health Worker and Paraprofessional Training Program will expand the public health workforce by training new community health workers (CHWs) and paraprofessionals and extending the knowledge and skills of current ones. This program aims to increase access to care, improve public health emergency response, and address the public health needs of underserved communities.
The program will focus on education and on-the-job training to build the pipeline of these public health workers in the most underserved communities. It will also support apprenticeship programs and on-the-job training at over 500 health care and public health sites nationally, such as emergency departments, health centers, state and local public health departments, community health centers, mobile health clinics, shelters, housing programs, faith-based organizations, and other locations where high-risk populations access care and receive services.
