Racial Justice Fund to Drive Systemic Change

Racial Justice Fund to Drive Systemic Change

We must act now. Achieving racial equity is long overdue. We cannot allow inequities to continue and expect to thrive – as people or as a region. GCF has long embraced racial equity as the core of our mission; it has always been paramount. Now, the call to address centuries of systemic racism has been further amplified by the disparities revealed by the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial divide across our nation. Now is the time.

Housing Our Future GCF Partners with LISC to Address Housing Crisis

Our region needs 40,000 more affordable housing units. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues its devastating impact on the economy, resulting in job losses and evictions, the crisis will only accelerate. Further, the pandemic and staggering affordable housing gap disproportionately affect the Black community; which already faces the highest unemployment rates in Hamilton County and significant job and wage disparities. The need is urgent.
