How the Fund Works

The goal is that the fund will be able to support multiple phases of funding focused on meeting acute response needs now and recovery over the longer-term. Initially, the fund will support organizations that are addressing urgent needs such as food access, primary health care, childcare, senior care, and housing assistance. It will help to assure we can meet the needs of our most vulnerable together. Funds may also be used to support nonprofit organizations facing hardship due to lost revenue while they continue to serve critical needs in our region and assist localities with the procurement of food and safety supplies.

An advisory committee consisting of representatives from the philanthropic, business and public sectors will review and distribute grants from the fund. See grants awarded to date.
