COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund for Idaho





The COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund, created in March by the Idaho Community Foundation, the United Ways of Idaho and the Idaho Nonprofit Center, has provided over $1M to trusted organizations in local communities helping low-income and vulnerable Idahoans affected by the crisis. 

Funding is still needed to help nonprofits and other community organizations recover from the financial effects of the statewide quarantine and continue serving their clients.

The Steering Committee is reviewing longer-term needs to determine priorities and timing of future grant distributions. All requests received by May 5, included those submitted in March and April that haven’t been funded, will be considered.

The first four weeks of grantmaking from the COVID-19 Fund for Idaho went to trusted organizations serving people who are homeless or housing insecure, food insecure, in need of physical or mental health services, domestic violence prevention and childcare.
