ELC Community Program
Making an impact against the COVID-19 Pandemic
What is ELC? The Epidemiology and Laboratory Capacity for Prevention and Control of Emerging Infectious Diseases (ELC) Program, funded by the CDC Foundation, provides hundreds of millions each year to all 50 states, several cities, and U.S. territories and affiliates to detect, respond to, control, and prevent infectious diseases.

As a regional grantee of the ELC grant, CJFHC funds Community Based Organizations (CBOs) with mini-grants, to develop and implement effective health communication & community engagement strategies to respond to the COVID-19 disease needs of vulnerable populations in the central region.
