The COVID-19 Community Response Fund was established in partnership by the Billings Community Foundation and the United Way of Yellowstone County. It is receiving support from individuals, corporations, and foundations throughout our region to provide immediate and coordinated response to the current COVID-19 pandemic.
- The Fund will provide flexible resources to 501(c)3 organizations in Yellowstone County and surrounding rural communities working with citizens who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the economic consequences of this pandemic.
- The Fund is designed to complement the work of public health officials and expand local non-profit capacity to address all aspects of the outbreak pandemic as efficiently as possible.
- The Fund’s first priority and focus is to distribute grants to non-profit organizations providing disaster relief efforts and serving economically vulnerable children, families, and seniors impacted by COVID-19.
- The Billings Community Foundation and the United Way of Yellowstone County have a long history of efficiently managing and providing quick turnaround to get funds where they are needed most. The Funding Partners are committed to being nimble, adaptive and transparent in all of these efforts.
