How Can Licking County Organizations Access Relief Funds?

The current priority of the Licking County COVID-19 Relief Fund is to provide resources to local organizations that are directly supporting Licking County residents whose basic needs are going unmet due to COVID-19. In order to respond to immediate needs and move resources as efficiently as possible, there is no formal application process for this stage of Relief Fund support. Because efforts are so widespread and the situation is rapidly evolving, please help make us aware of your organization’s needs by sharing them here. We will keep these needs in mind as the funding process progresses and contact you for more information if necessary.

An organization is eligible to receive support from the Licking County COVID-19 Relief Fund even if it has a current grant with Licking County Foundation or United Way of Licking County.     

We understand the COVID-19 outbreak is impacting nonprofits in many ways, including increased demand for services and lost revenue due to closures and cancellations. At this time, we are not able to prioritize organizations that have lost or are likely to lose revenue due to canceled events or programs. 

The Licking County Foundation will administer the Relief Fund in partnership with United Way of Licking County and in close collaboration with our partners. Together we will proactively identify potential recipients, solicit guidance on potential recipients from community advisors, and recommend final awards. The size and number of distributions will depend on the funds available. Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the outbreak and recovery phases of the crisis, making it possible to move resources quickly and adapt to evolving needs in subsequent funding phases.
