Tri-County Community Partnership (TCCP) / SoCal Community Partnerships (SCCP)

Civic infrastructure to ensure effective, inclusive and equitable rapid response.

Interested in building a cross-sector vaccine equity coalition elsewhere? 


The Tri-County Community Partnership is an innovative, cross-sectoral and cross-regional effort  that harnesses the talent and civic energy of government agencies, community media, nonprofits, businesses, and faith-based organizations to collaborate on common solutions to major issues. 

As for the SoCal Community Partnership, this is a similar meeting that not only focuses on the Inland Empire and Imperial Valley, but also brings in leaders from the Orange, Ventura and San Diego Counties to focus on issues affecting the Southern California region as a whole. 


The first major task of TCCP is to connect and collaborate on vaccine outreach. The partnership is tackling several, inter-related problems related to vaccine hesitancy, vaccine logistics, and vaccine equity. Partners in the effort are using TCCP to effectively learn, share, and collaborate across county lines, and to harness the expertise of trusted community partners and trusted messengers in various sectors. 

The intent is for the TCCP to continue beyond 2021, with other issues such as housing and food insecurity as significant regional priorities.
