About the fund
The Arizona COVID-19 Community Response Fund was established by the Arizona Community Foundation and is receiving support from individuals, corporations, and foundations from across the state. The fund provides immediate relief to nonprofit organizations in Arizona facing an increased demand for services from clients and communities as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Once the state of emergency has expired, any remaining funds will support nonprofit organizations impacted by COVID-19 financially as a result of program disruptions or cancellations resulting in revenue loss.
Use of grant funds
Immediate relief grants
Requests for immediate relief should address funding for general operations directly related to changes in service delivery resulting from the outbreak of COVID-19 in Arizona; or to provide direct assistance to economically vulnerable individuals and families impacted by COVID-19 in Arizona. Such assistance may include the provision of food, housing, utilities, transportation, childcare, education, and/or health services. Grant funding may not be utilized to develop or implement new programs or services not in place prior to March 11, 2020. Organizations eligible for immediate relief may re-apply for additional funding every 30 days for the duration of the State of Arizona’s Emergency Declaration.
Long-term recovery grants
Requests for long-term recovery grants that address the impact of lost revenue due to closures, cancellations, or service disruptions will be considered following expiration of the State of Arizona’s Emergency Declaration, as determined by the Arizona Department of Health Services. Requests of this type and funding levels will be evaluated by an advisory council once the need for immediate relief funding has subsided. Organizations may only submit one request for long-term financial assistance.
Please read through the grant guidelines.
