MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund
Montgomery County has one of the highest concentrations of COVID-19 cases of any county in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. To respond to this growing crisis, concerned leaders are joining to create a rapid response fund for Montgomery County: The MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund. The Fund is a community-wide effort to support the immediate needs of residents hardest hit by the pandemic.
Grant funds were distributed to a variety of nonprofit organizations serving every area of the county. Grantees included food pantries, senior care programs, rent and utility payment programs for low-income residents, behavioral healthcare and telehealth services, ambulance services, childcare for healthcare workers, domestic violence services, protective personal equipment purchase for nonprofits continuing essential in-person services, public benefits navigator support, and emergency shelters among others.
The MontCoPA COVID-19 Response Fund will provide grants to nonprofit organizations with a successful track record of serving vulnerable populations in Montgomery County. The Fund is designed to complement the work of Montgomery County's public health, state, and federal officials and expand local capacity to address the outbreak as efficiently as possible.
