Case Study: Creating FEMA Corps: 'A Template for Developing the U.S. Public Health Jobs Corps' [open pdf - 0B]
From the Executive Summary: "The U.S. Public Health Jobs Corps must quickly mobilize to provide culturally competent, community-centric assistance to Americans caught in the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] crisis. The U.S. Public Health Jobs Corps can build on the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Corps' successes and lessons learned to put Americans to work in partnership with state, tribal, and local leaders, nonprofits, academia, and the private sector. In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, the FEMA Corps model is a proven, scalable, whole-of-community approach to meeting every community's needs across America."
