The COVID-19 Community Response Fund provides support to individuals and families through grants to nonprofit organizations.
Waco Foundation and the United Way of Waco-McLennan County partnered together to create the COVID-19 Community Response Fund to provide support to individuals and families in our community. The fund provided two rounds of grants to local agencies that are working on the front line of the pandemic. Each organization used its existing processes and protocols to distribute funds directly to individuals and families for needs such as food, housing, utilities, prescription assistance and childcare.
One hundred percent of COVID-19 Community Response Funds supported local individuals and families in need due to circumstances related to the pandemic.
The COVID-19 Community Response Fund was housed at Waco Foundation and administered through United Way. Click here for more information about Waco Foundation's COVID-19 grantmaking separate from the Community Response Fund.
