COVID-19 COMMUNITY RESPONSE FUND
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties launched the COVID-19 Community Response Fund to help support local agencies providing access to food and to mental and behavioral health services. As of September 10, 2020, we have awarded $288,500 in COVID relief funding to the following organizations:
Boys & Girls Clubs of Benton & Franklin Counties (Pasco & Prosser locations)
Planned Parenthood/Tri-Cities Mutual Aid Network
Riverview Food Bank
Tri-Cities Diversity and Inclusion Council
The COVID-19 rapid response fund has now wrapped up and we are transitioning to ongoing community recovery and rebuilding efforts. Donations toward COVID recovery received before December 31, 2020 are still eligible for for matching funds from All in Washington for COVID recovery.
COMMUNITY IMPACT GRANTS
New community impact grants will be announced in late September. These grants will run for a 14-month period from November 1, 2020 through December 31, 2021. Please check back here at that time for a list of funded partners and to learn more about how we're putting donations toward the areas of greatest need in our community.
