HCPH Partner Incentive Program

Partner Incentive Program Overview

COVID-19 vaccinations are one of the best ways that Harris County residents can protect themselves, their family, and their community against COVID-19. As trusted messengers, community-based organizations and faith-based organizations serve an important role in protecting their members and community by providing an option to receive the COVID-19 vaccine in a familiar environment and amplifying messaging about the importance of the vaccine, its efficacy, etc.

In order to better facilitate our partners’ ability to make a lasting impact in the community through COVID-19 vaccinations, Harris County developed a Vaccine Partner Incentive Program to financially support this work in our communities.

Partner Incentives

Partners can earn $50 per person that receives a COVID-19 vaccine dose up to $5,000. For more information call 832-927-8787 or email [email protected]

Application Process Information

Applications will go through a selection process overseen by the Resilience and Equity for the Harris County Public Health COVID-19 Response.

Once a participant has been selected the Operations Scheduling Team will work with selected partners to schedule a date for a vaccine event as well as a date for the second dose. This includes a walkthrough of the space and a determination about a possible floor plan and to ensure the space can hold the expected occupancy.

After the selection process and walkthrough have concluded: 

- Partners will be given 3-4 weeks to promote their event
- Financial support will be provided to the partner based on the number of individuals receiving a vaccine at their site

NOTE: HCPH will schedule an initial event for first doses and then a second event (21 or 28 days later) depending on the vaccine offered. The incentive is offered for the first event only.
