The purpose of the COVID-19 response project is to promote emergency preparedness during the pandemic among African American churches. Specific objectives are 1) to demonstrate the feasibility of implementing a COVID-19 emergency preparedness strategy within an existing community-based participatory research partnership with local African American churches and 2) to provide local African American churches with culturally relevant, evidence-based materials via electronic communication platforms to mitigate COVID-19 risk in their communities.
