COVID-19 RESPONSE FUND

The establishment of a COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund for Black Greater Grand Rapids was essential in supporting relief efforts for Black people dealing with COVID-19. With so much distrust in the Black community surrounding the pandemic, Black Impact Collaborative felt it important to establish an organization of trusted individuals, with community credibility, to act as a beacon of hope and in the interests of Black people. 

The COVID-19 Response Fund focused on food assistance; rent and utility support; personal and protective equipment and supplies; support to Black businesses; support for recently released persons from incarceration; and support to grieving families.
