COVID-19 Rapid Relief Fund Grants Awarded

Grants from the COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund are being distributed on a rolling basis as fundraising continues and as CFA works to address the immediate, short-term, and long-term needs that arise from the pandemic.

We are working to address this fluid situation in the most responsive, responsible, and efficient way possible. As we move forward, new priorities may arise, and we anticipate that needs will change. Additionally, state and federal funding is being made available, so we are working to determine the best opportunities for local philanthropy and which requests might be better handled through outside sources. The COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund Committee members will continue to evaluate requests on a case-by-case basis. CLICK HERE for information on how to apply.
