Since its inception in 2019, TEA distributed over $800,000 in mini-grant funding to 36 community health organizations. TEA’s Mini-Grant Program funds community-centered projects serving Asian, Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander, Hispanic/Latino, and African American communities that are disproportionately impacted by TB.
TEA looks forward to building on the progress made so far towards TB elimination by inviting you to join the 2023 TEA virtual summit on November 8-9, 2023. This exciting event will take place via Zoom from 7:00am-11:00am HT / 9:00am-1:00pm PT / 12:00-4:00pm ET.
This year’s summit will focus on the theme “Building Healthy Communities Free of TB”, showcasing TEA’s Mini-Grant Program. Health center staff, community leaders, and other TB leaders are invited to listen in and participate in conversations focused on the exceptional innovations from diverse communities and their collaborative efforts toward achieving health equity over the past five years.
Over the span of two days at the virtual summit, participants will hear discussions on lessons learned and promising practices from our communities on the impact of TEA’s mini-grants. Together, we can build healthy and resilient communities free of TB.
