The coronavirus has brought to the forefront, and is worsening, long-standing systemic issues of racist and unequal access to healthcare, food, and resources. The crisis has also shown the resilience, creativity, and resourcefulness of our communities. Throughout the District, we have seen individuals and community groups rapidly respond to the crisis to help those most vulnerable. Much of this work is being led by organizations that Diverse City Fund has supported.
To support these community-led responses to the ongoing crisis, Diverse City Fund moved quickly to create an emergency fund that distributed $154,000 in rapid-response grants to our grantees responding to this crisis.
This emergency grant round is currently closed as we assess how the needs of our grantees are shifting with the persistence of this pandemic. Stay tuned for more to come and learn more about our first round of grantees below.
