Applications Open for CFAAC’s Community Crisis Respnse Fund – U.S.
The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC) is seeking applications for its Community Crisis Response Fund that is designed to allow funding priorities to evolve as the needs of the community change.
1000 new grants and donors
The number of people affected by the COVID-19 virus in Anne Arundel County has continued to grow, and for some, the effects have been dire. There is a tremendous amount of need in the region—especially amongst the most vulnerable and underserved people in the community.
Food Security: CFAAC will accept grant applications from organizations to provide access to food during this time for those in-need due to the public health crisis. COVID-19 presents a threat to already food insecure individuals, from infants to seniors, and families who now face an uncertain economic future.
Support for Basic Human Needs: CFAAC will accept grant applications from organizations that are helping individuals and families with immediate basic human needs in response to COVID-19.
Homelessness or housing insecurity: CFAAC will accept grant applications from organizations that are helping individuals and families who are facing housing insecurity or homelessness as a result of the impacts of COVID-19.
