COVID-19 Community Response Fund
On March 10, 2020, the King County Council approved a suite of emergency legislation proposed by King County Executive Dow Constantine to aid in the county’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. The final package included $1 million for the Office of Equity and Social Justice (OESJ) to provide flexible resources for engagement and outreach to populations on the front lines of the coronavirus outbreak.
Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to community based organizations and other stakeholders serving impacted communities. OESJ will prioritize funding to partners working with communities at the highest risk of immediate and long term negative health, social and economic impacts, with an emphasis on communities located near isolation, quarantine and recovery sites.
Please download the COVID-19 Community Response Fund overview and criteria and application for the fund at the Equity and Social Justice website. Applications are currently being accepted on a rolling basis.
Questions and completed applications must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Misinformation about coronavirus can create fear and hostility that hurts people and makes it harder to keep everyone healthy. We’re stronger as a community when we stand together against discrimination. Please utilize these resources to prevent, interrupt, and respond to stigma.
