Neighbors for Neighbors Fund Grants 

In March of 2020, the Community Foundation created the Neighbors for Neighbors Fund in response to the coronavirus epidemic. 

As the COVID-19 crisis has heightened inequities in our communities and made life even more difficult for already-vulnerable populations, grants totaling $473,517 from the Neighbors for Neighbors Fund will help people access the most basic human rights: food, housing, healthcare and education.

Following is a listing of the 61 grantees from Round I. We anticipate a second round of grantmaking later this year as the recovery phase unfolds.
