What does a Prepared4ALL Disability Inclusion Coach do, and how is it different from what Prepared4ALL Affiliates do?

How is Prepared4ALL funded?   

Prepared4ALL is a one-year, CDC-funded project that aligns with CDC’s public health jurisdiction on planning and preparedness. AUCD advises on disability inclusion and coordinates with sister grantees, NACCHO and ASTHO, to ensure that a disability perspective is included in their efforts and so that there is no duplication of efforts.  

Do Prepared4ALL Disability Inclusion Coaches receive a stipend?  

Prepared4ALL engages local organizations and AUCD trainees that see this work as connected to efforts that they are already compensated to do. We do not provide additional funding.  AUCD understands  that organizations may not be able to weave this work into existing efforts, so the Prepared4ALL online training and Public Health is for Everyone online toolkit are freely available to all.
