Resiliency Fund applications open to help organizations impacted by COVID-19
Applications are now open for the Ramsey County Resiliency Fund, which will invest in community organizations that provide food and basic needs, health and well-being and workforce services to residents in 2020. The fund is an initiative of the Ramsey County Investment and Support Efforts program and open to 501(c)(3) nonprofits in good standing with the Minnesota Secretary of State.
Funds will be distributed in three categories:
- Food and basic needs - Open to organizations that provide services such as food shelves, food banks and food and basic needs distribution or delivery including cleaning supplies and hygiene products.
- Health and well-being - Open to organizations that serve communities that have been disproportionally impacted by COVID-19 and provide services such as self-care/self-healing, stress resiliency and support for children, youth and families (such as mental health, wellness, healing justice and cultural health services).
- Workforce - Open to organizations that provide programming such as job search and employment readiness, career exploration and career pathways.
Organizations may be eligible for multiple area of the fund. A separate application will be required for each category.
Applications are being accepted through Dec. 30 at noon.
