Press Release: Willamette Health Council COVID-19 Community Response Fund Grant Opportunity
The Lund Report is offering this coverage for free to better inform the public at this difficult time. But we need your support to help us stretch our resources. Please sign up for a tax-deductible premium subscription or consider making a donation. That is also tax deductible because we're a 501(c)(3) organization.
The Willamette Health Council (WHC) is the governing body for the Coordinated Care Organization (CCO), PacificSource Community Solutions Marion-Polk and is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The WHC has developed a COVID-19 Community Emergency Response Fund. This will provide funding to organizations, programs and/or projects that serve those disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis within Marion County and Polk County. This includes, but is not limited to: the homeless, seniors, the medically fragile/those with underlying health conditions, migrant seasonal farmworkers, Latinos and other ethnic minority groups, the recently unemployed, children in at-risk homes, those impacted by domestic violence/in domestic violence shelters, and foster care youth and families. Organizations may apply for up to $15,000 in grant funding.
Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the COVID-19 crisis subsides, and/or funds are exhausted. To complete a grant application, please visit Willamette Health Council's webisite.
