Below is a list of local nonprofit organizations awarded grants through the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund (CCRF). The funds were distributed to help increase the organizations’ capacity to provide access to essential services such as emergency food and supplies, health services, and financial assistance through direct cash transfers, as well as mortgage, rent, and utility assistance. A later round of funding was dedicated to supporting youth and young adults through arts and culture, education, civic engagement, and activities promoting general well-being.
In addition to the individual agency grants, the CCRF invested capstone grant funding in region-wide initiatives developed to provide long-term positive impacts on our community. The funded initiatives include Chicago Connected, the City of Chicago Racial Equity Rapid Response Task Force, and Together We Rise.
