In your email, please share a quick description of your organization, what you need and the population impacted. Please keep it brief.
Due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on families, individuals, and community organizations in our region, the COVID-19 REGIONAL RESPONSE FUND has been intentionally designed to be responsive and flexible to address community needs of our most vulnerable as they change and evolve.
Initially, over the next 1-2 weeks, all requests for funding will be triaged into the following categories with a priority of supporting ‘Immediate’ Funding requests:
- ‘Immediate’ needs – Funding necessary to support basic necessities and safety of families most impacted by COVID-19 (such as: food insecurity, housing/ shelter, childcare/ eldercare, and supports for medical response)
- ‘Near term’ needs – Funding to stabilize critical services and/or support community organizations in the ‘near term’ (i.e. within next 2-4 weeks)
- ‘Longer term’ or recovery needs for families and community organizations
As our community response continues, we anticipate a more formal process to solicit funding to support ‘near term’ and ‘longer term’ needs. Given the fast moving pace of developments, we are committed to advancing transparency in this process to the extent possible and plan to update this page with additional information as the process is clarified.
Please note, due to the volume and scope of need we regret we may not be able to respond to everyone.
