What We Are Doing
The COVID-19 Response Fund was formed to quickly and effectively address both the health and economic challenges of this virus.
COVID-19 continues to impact our entire region. So many of our neighbors have lost their jobs, seen reductions in hours or are experiencing loss of income due to closed establishments or canceled events.
Nonprofits Seeking Funding
Funding will be available for nonprofits and faith-based organizations providing immediate response to meet basic needs of those impacted by COVID-19. Priority will be given to organizations providing direct assistance to individuals impacted by wage loss. The focus of this funding is emergency assistance for rent/mortgage, utilities or food.
