Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund

About This Fund

The Greater Houston COVID-19 Recovery Fund is a joint effort by United Way of Greater Houston and the Greater Houston Community Foundation to provide help for those facing the most severe hardships from the unforeseen economic crisis created by COVID-19. As the pandemic continues to limit access to work and wages, the lack of resources to obtain basic needs, including food, shelter and other human necessities, continues to distress the most vulnerable in our community. The fund serves Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery and Waller counties.

To date, the fund has invested $10.5 million in more than 90 trusted nonprofit partners and grassroots organizations that support food insecure households, those who need emergency financial assistance for basic needs and housing, domestic violence survivors, and the homeless population. The fund task force continues to monitor data and assess needs to prepare its next round of investments. Funding decisions are made in concert with the most current data identifying those disproportionately impacted by the pandemic based on the number of COVID-19 cases, unemployment insurance claims and pre-existing poverty conditions.
