Greene County Emergency Response Fund is established to address local needs resulting from emergency and disaster situations in Greene County.

Initial partners in establishing this fund are CFGC and the Greene County United Way. The Greene County Emergency Response Fund will be held by CFGC as a quick response fund to address immediate, short-term and long-term needs in the wake of a county emergency. The review committee will include members of both partners and other community leaders who have knowledge of local needs and organizations.

The purpose of the Greene County Emergency Response Fund is to provide quick, flexible grants and resources to nonprofit organizations our area working with communities (people and organizations) who are heavily impacted by a local disasters and emergencies. Grants made to health and human service organizations will help ensure that basic needs are met, including food, housing, and healthcare.

CFGC will use initial gifts to address local needs caused by the COVID-19 virus. Reports will be provided to donors about grants made and impact of the fund. Should donations exceed the COVID-19 needs, remaining funds will be used to address future emergency and disaster needs in Greene County.

Emergency Response Grants

Grants made from the fund may be used for operating support so organizations have the capacity to provide services in a quick and orderly fashion, as well as, direct relief of individuals and families. 

Because this Fund is designed to help the community, we will partner with other Greene County organizations and businesses to set up a community response team to review and act on requests for grants from this fund.

The Fund will have an easy and short grant application which is designed to provide quick and responsive grants that meet identifiable, urgent needs resulting from an emergency situation.
