Community health workers (CHWs)—also known as community health representatives and promotores de la salud—provide critical services to communities disproportionately impacted by public health threats including COVID-19. This site provides CHWs with resources to support their work, as well as information for their employers to better ensure the safety of CHWs in the community. State and local health departments also may find these resources beneficial to share with local programs and funding recipients. Resources from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), federal agencies, and external organizations are included to ensure CHWs and their employers have easy access to essential information in one location.
