The Austin Ca Covid-Chapman-Bloomberg (ACCBB) program is a multi-faceted approach to combating COVID-19 in the Austin, Texas, area. It was created through a partnership between the City of Austin, the Travis County Collaborative, and core funding support from Bloomberg Philanthropies. Through this initiative, Austin aims to provide comprehensive resources and access to both residents and businesses in order to safely navigate the pandemic. The program seeks to reduce the spread of the virus while providing essential supports that greaten long-term wellbeing. By providing pandemic relief funds, resources in health, food, shelter, education, and job training, improved testing and vaccine distribution, and greater access to healthcare Austin hopes to protect vulnerable populations while creating a resilient and forward-looking community.
Pandemic Relief Funds
One of the primary focuses of the ACCBB program is to provide direct relief for those impacted by the pandemic. To do this, the program has developed the Covid Emergency Assistance Program (CEAP), a citywide fund which provides financial relief for rent, mortgage, utilities, food, housing, and so forth. The money for this fund comes from a combination of federal and city programs, as well as private donations from Bloomberg Philanthropies, local businesses, and other community donors. In partnership with non-profit and governmental organizations, the ACCBB has been able to provide over $1.5 million to residents in need who meet the program criteria.
Health, Food, Shelter, and Education
In addition to improving access to financial resources, the ACCBB program also works to help ensure that Austin residents and businesses have access to health, food, shelter, and education services. This includes partnering with organizations to provide additional healthcare services, such as mental health and substance abuse counseling, as well as providing food boxes and nutritional support in the form of grocery delivery services and an expanded food bank service. The program has also worked to create safe shelter spaces, with the help of the county, for those that may be temporarily or permanently homeless due to the economic impacts of the pandemic. In education, the ACCBB is providing additional technology and mentorship services for Austin’s core public school students, in order to support them during this time.
Testing and Vaccine Distribution
Another key focus of the ACCBB program relates to the testing and vaccine distribution. In the early stages of the pandemic, the ACCBB was instrumental in rapidly launching more than a dozen free at-home testing sites for Austin residents. To support vaccine distribution, the program is working with the county to launch well-equipped mass vaccination clinics. This enables Austin County to administer the vaccine to a much larger number of people much more quickly, as compared to most other places in the city.
Access to Healthcare
The ACCBB program has also made great strides in improving access to healthcare in Austin. Through partnerships with private healthcare providers, the program has been able to expand access to virtual health services to those without insurance, while also improving existing health care services in the community. By providing better access to care, the ACCBB program seeks to improve the health and wellness of its residents, while also helping to build a more resilient community.
The Drive for Equity
The ACCBB program also has a strong focus on promoting equity in the Austin area. This includes initiatives to increase access to services for underserved communities, as well as improving access to solutions that work for those traditionally marginalized by society. Through these efforts, the ACCBB seeks to help build a more equitable and inclusive society, even among the difficult circumstances created by the pandemic.
The ACCBB program also aims to provide economic support to Austin businesses, both to help them face their current situation, and to support them as they continue to operate post-pandemic. This includes providing back-stop loans to eligible businesses in order to help them through the rapid changes to their operations, as well as providing financial incentives to businesses that work to build back in a sustainable, inclusive, socially responsible way. The program has also implemented a Business Reopening Kit, which provides business owners with a comprehensive guide to re-opening their operations safely and effectively.
Research and Data Analysis
To ensure their programs are as effective as possible in addressing the pandemic’s impacts, the ACCBB puts a great emphasis on research and data analysis. This includes tracking the number of cases and creating comprehensive vaccine plans, as well as working with the Austin Public Health Department to analyze levels of risk, develop targeted interventions, and eventually evaluate the program’s overall effectiveness. Through these efforts, the ACCBB program seeks to gain a better understanding of how the virus is spreading throughout the community and how best to approach it.
To ensure the programs are effectively communicated and to better understand community needs, the ACCBB places a strong emphasis on public engagement and community impact. Through partnerships the program has developed online communications campaigns and outreach communication efforts to residents and businesses, to ensure everyone has access to information about the program’s activities. The ACCBB also hosts events and public gatherings to engage residents, build consensus, and provide guidance on how to stay safe.
Finally, the ACCBB program is focusing on providing vaccine education as a key component of their efforts. This involves providing information about the vaccine, the process for getting a vaccine, and any other associated education, to ensure that everyone is aware and able to get vaccinated safely. The program also strives to promote vaccination amongst those who may be hesitant and to address any related misinformation.
Through creating the Austin Ca Covid-Chapman-Bloomberg Program, Austin hopes to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on its residents, businesses and structures. With direct relief funds that are targeted at helping vulnerable populations, improved access to health, food, shelter, and education services, improved testing and vaccine distribution, and better access to healthcare, the ACCBB program seeks to create a stronger, healthier, and more equitable Austin.
