Community Response Framework – March 2021
Response & Recovery
In March of 2020, after the Shelter in Place order went into effect, TTCF opened the Emergency Response Fund (ERF) to assist our nonprofits directly helping those in the community most affected by COVID-19. Our first two rounds of grants, in April and May, were focused on helping core safety-net organizations build critical business infrastructure to move operations virtually and provide direct aid for community members. The third round, between July and October, was distributed to the broader nonprofit community that felt the impact of the crisis due to a loss in fundraising capabilities, increase in business expenses to support virtual efforts and COVID safety protocols, etc.
