COVID- 19 Charity Needs Assessment (03/17/20)

A needs assessment was sent to more than 400 charities in our service region to determine extent of need during the next 60 days. We plan to use this information to determine what kind of resources and how much additional funding is needed to continue serving vulnerable populations during this time and if it warrants our action in activating our emergency disaster funding plan. In addition, we will set up an online COVID-19 CHARITABLE NEEDS LIST to promote the needs of our organizations, as well as resources they may have to offer, through our online channels using the information the provide in the needs assessment.
