FPWA, an anti-poverty group, is working to improve vaccination rates in Black communities in the state.

FPWA was given grant money from the state as part of a $15 million dollar program to help fight vaccination hesitancy in communities that seem to have it the most.

The group received $5.5 million dollars to put toward their efforts.
