The Rockland County Department of Health, led by Acting Commissioner Kevin McKay, announced the approval of two substantial grants from the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in a joint meeting with County Executive Ed Day.
The first grant, amounting to $200,700, will fund a mobile vaccination vehicle, enhancing the Rockland Department of Health’s capacity to deliver vaccines directly to the community, providing more accessible and efficient services.
The second, a robust sum of $5,931,634, is allocated for a 5-year Public Health Workforce Infrastructure Grant. This crucial grant aims to bolster and strengthen the public health workforce, ensuring Rockland County is better equipped to meet public health challenges in the years to come.
Both grants mark significant investment in the health and wellbeing of Rockland County’s residents, signaling a proactive approach to public health initiatives and readiness.
