Given the COVID-19 disparities among African Americans, community-based pandemic emergency response efforts are essential to serve and protect the health and well-being of this population. Leveraging the existing infrastructure of an academic community partnership to support this response facilitates rapid dissemination of culturally relevant resources and materials to economically and socially marginalized communities whose socioeconomic challenges are exacerbated by a public health crisis. Identifying emergency resource needs and quickly implementing COVID-19 emergency preparedness strategies within embedded trusted institutions in these communities can equip them to safely navigate the pandemic. In turn, these institutions can serve as conduits to connect communities to accurate COVID-19–related health information and critical resources to mitigate and reverse COVID-19–related inequities.
