NOTE: We are working to make the application process easy and fast. The application process is being developed and will be shared as soon as its available. Please be patient.

Humboldt Area Foundation and our affiliate, Wild Rivers Community Foundation, launched the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund to address the immediate and emerging needs of our region's most vulnerable residents—from mitigation to eventual recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.

The number of people affected by the coronavirus in our four county region continues to grow. Many of us are grappling with sudden changes to our everyday lives. For some, the effects are particularly dire.

We are especially concerned about the most vulnerable in our communities, from seniors and people with compromised immune systems to low-wage workers and those needing food and shelter. 

About the COVID-19 Regional Response Fund

The COVID-19 Regional Response Fund will support urgent community needs identified by our regional partners. The fund will make grants on a rolling basis to nonprofits, charitable organizations and public agencies meeting the immediate needs of residents in Trinity, Humboldt, Del Norte and Curry counties. The fund's initial focus will be on seniors, low-income families and tribal communities.

With Wild Rivers Community Foundation and the support of foundation partners, The California Endowment and The California Wellness Foundation, we are committing $150,000 to seed the fund. We now invite businesses, civic groups, individuals and community partner to join us in this effort. Through this fund, we seek to fill the gaps. We will be flexible and adjust to meet changing needs and circumstances. 

By being responsive during times of uncertainty, we embrace our role as a community foundation to respond to the evolving needs of our diverse residents. We will mobilize all the tools available to us. In addition to this fund, we expect to tap into our other grantmaking funds, to use our ability to convene businesses, public sector and philanthropic partners, to utilize our loan program and to model collaborative and proactive community leadership.

The COVID-19 Regional Response Fund is one way you join us and help address our immediate and future regional needs. We can't do it alone. We ask your help.
