Organizations seeking grants from this fund

To deploy resources rapidly, we will not be accepting requests for funding or posting a grant application. We will instead work together with community advisors and funders to identify organizations currently providing types of support to area residents that are aligned with the priorities of the Response Fund to expand available resources and relief. Priorities in the first phase of funding will include: food, childcare, transportation, and healthcare or prescription assistance.

To let us know more about the work you are doing and your needs, please complete the form below.
