Vaccination Incentive Program

August 30, 2021

On August 17, 2021, Fayetteville City Council unanimously passed a resolution establishing an incentive program offering a one-time payment of $100 to individuals living or working in Fayetteville who become fully vaccinated against COVID-19 beginning August 17 through October 15. This also applies to students living in Fayetteville while they attend the University of Arkansas.  An initial $400,000 from the City’s American Rescue Plan funding was approved to fund this program.  The deadline to apply for incentive payments is November 1, 2021.

To qualify, you must have received your second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine within the eligibility time period.

Please note:  incentive payments are limited to one per individual. The incentive does not apply to "booster" shots. 

Please use this form to apply for your incentive payment.  You will need the following documentation: 

  • A photo of your vaccination card showing your name and date of birth, along with the date(s) of your vaccination(s), vaccine brand (Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson), and the vaccine lot number.
  • If you are a resident of Fayetteville, you will need proof of current residency: A photo of your ID with your address, a recent utility bill, or lease agreement. 
  • If you work in Fayetteville, but live elsewhere, you will need to provide proof of current employment in Fayetteville, such as a photo of a paystub, 1099 form, or invoice for work performed during the eligibility time period. 

Applying for Vaccine Incentives for Children

If you are a parent or guardian of children who have completed their full vaccination between August 17 and October 15, 2021, there is a place on this form where you may include their vaccination information as well. You do not need to complete separate forms for each child.
