The COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia was established to provide flexible funding resources for nonprofit organizations and other programs in our region responding to COVID-19 and its impacts. The Fund’s focus is to help communities who are disproportionately impacted by the virus and its economic consequences.
The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia announced Round One grantees from the COVID-19 Response Fund for Northern Virginia on Friday, March 20 and Round Two on Friday, April 3rd.
We will begin accepting applications for Round Three grants Friday, April 10, 2020.
The Community Foundation remains focused on providing general operating grants for local nonprofits offering basic needs assistance or emergency financial assistance to our most vulnerable neighbors, especially those who have been further stressed by the coronavirus outbreak, including seniors, low income families experiencing short term financial crises related to a COVID-19 impact, residents who are food insecure, residents who have no medical insurance or who are underinsured, residents who lack access to sick days, residents with limited English language proficiency, neighbors who are self-quarantined without sufficient support from their families and friends, healthcare and gig economy workers, immigrants, and communities of color.
As the Community Foundation continues to accept and receive unprecedented support from the community for the COVID-19 Response Fund, we will work to determine the details of the third round of funding soon and share it here.
