TEA is offering Mini-Grants to organizations serving Asian, Asian American (A/AA), Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander (NH/PI), non-U.S. born Latino American, and U.S. born African American communities to enhance LTBI and/or TB community engagement and education, provider education, and quality improvement.
