Greater Kansas City Community Foundation: Kansas City Regional COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund

Host Organization: Greater Kansas City Community Foundationmdi-circle-small Kansas City, MO, United States mdi-circle-small


The Kansas City Regional COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund was created in March 2020 to address the needs of the Kansas City region's most vulnerable communities affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Fund was established by the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation, United Way of Greater Kansas City, LISC Greater Kansas City (Local Initiatives Support Corporation), and the Mid-America Regional Council (MARC).

The Kansas City Regional COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund provides grants to nonprofit organizations that have experience supporting impacted communities – particularly those that are disproportionately affected by this global pandemic and its economic consequences.

The Fund announced its fourth round of grants on June 8. The four rounds have provided more than $10 million to 261 organizations across the Kansas City region. Grants support operations and services with a focus on critical needs, including, but not limited to:
· Housing support (rent, mortgage, utilities)
· Food insecurity
· Access to health care
· Other critical human services

The Fund will support charitable organizations to both maintain their operations and services and increase their capacity to serve those impacted by COVID-19, including addressing the economic impacts on individuals and their families due to job interruption and reduction in income and benefits.

Additional grants will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues and needs are identified through outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis.
