Pandemic Assistance & Vaccine Equity Logo

The federal COVID-19 Pandemic Assistance and Vaccination Equity (PAVE) supplemental funding program provides funding for many different organizations to help more Kansans get vaccinated against COVID-19. PAVE focuses on funding local efforts to expand vaccine programs and ensure greater equity and access to vaccines by those disproportionately affected by the pandemic, including high-risk and underserved populations such as racial and ethnic minorities and rural communities.
