Requested Agenda Title:


Budget Adjustment: Health Department’s Request to Recognize New Grant to Improve Health Literacy ($977,477 in Revenue and Expense, 15 Time-Limited FTEs)



Requested Agenda Item Description: Health communication is vital to health equity and reduction of health disparity. When an individual is presented with health information that they do not understand, they are unable to process the information and make appropriate health decisions, which may compromise their health circumstance. 

The new HLP grant project intends to produce inclusive culturally and linguistically appropriate plain language communications to improve health literacy, especially as it pertains to COVID-19 public health services. This grant project along with the new Health Disparities Grant, Form ID 22682, will be working together and established in the new sub-department Health Equity Bureau.
