The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County: Community Crisis Response Fund

Host Organization: The Community Foundation of Anne Arundel Countymdi-circle-small Annapolis, MD, United States mdi-circle-small


The number of people affected by the COVID-19 virus in Anne Arundel County has continued to grow, and for some, the effects have been dire. There is a tremendous amount of need in our region—especially amongst the most vulnerable and underserved people in the community.

Through the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County's (CFAAC) Community Crisis Response Fund, CFAAC will make a limited number of single immediate-use grants (maximum $2,500) to nonprofits addressing the increase in community needs and demand for services in the following impact areas in Anne Arundel County (AAC): food security, support for basic human needs, childcare or camp programs serving underserved populations, and housing insecurity and homelessness.

CFAAC’s Community Crisis Response Fund was designed to allow funding priorities to evolve as the needs of the community change. Rapid response grant priority areas may shift according to the most critical needs in Anne Arundel County in subsequent funding cycles.
