COVID-19 Pandemic Intensifies Housing Challenges

COVID-19 Pandemic Intensifies Housing Challenges

Our region’s well-documented lack of affordable housing – more than 40,000 units – has been a key factor in Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s (GCF) focus on racial equity.

You can count on us

You can count on us

We are your community foundation, and our role is to lead the way in addressing the region’s most critical needs. I can assure you, we’re on it. The COVID-19 pandemic will disproportionately affect our most vulnerable residents and the organizations that support them. Many of our neighbors will be forced to choose between their health, care for their children, food on the table, a roof over their heads, and more. As a community, we must step up. Mayor John Cranley has asked us to activate an emergency response fund in partnership with other funders, corporations, and individual donors like you. Early next week, we will let you know how you can help.
