The ongoing efforts to provide access to testing for farmworkers is part of a partnership with the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS), the Florida Division of Emergency Management (FDEM), and local county governments.
In addition to FAMU, the first wave of schools to benefit from the foundation’s investment include Hampton University, Howard University, Meharry Medical College, Morehouse School of Medicine and Xavier University of Louisiana. Up to four more testing hubs will be added in the coming weeks, the foundation noted.
The new grants from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)--which come to $689,094--will help Community Health Centers with COVID-19 testing. Earlier this summer, Crist announced $1.1 million for Pinellas County and Community Health Centers of Pinellas for COVID-19 testing.
