Regional Rapid Response Assistance Program (R3AP):

Ohio’s congregate care settings, including senior housing, day centers, and senior centers have experienced major disruptions in service during the public health emergency. The new Regional Rapid Response Assistance Program (R3AP) builds on previous support by committing teams of regional experts to help identify and diagnose issues with care delivery and provide support to resolve them.

About R3AP

The Regional Rapid Response Assistance Program (R3AP), pronounced RAP, is designed to help Ohio congregate care centers and protect older Ohioans through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The first phase of R3AP focused on administering COVID-19 vaccine clinics at affordable senior housing locations (see below). But, there is now an expanded suite of services.

Assistance provided by the R3AP includes but is not limited to:

  • Vaccination,
  • COVID-19 testing and cohorting,
  • Temporary staff support, and
  • Infection prevention and control education.
