Apply for a Nonprofit Response Grant
During these uncertain and extraordinary times resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, Hutchinson Community Foundation and United Way of Reno County know the essential role local nonprofit organizations play in the health, wellbeing, and resilience of our community. This grant program seeks to partner directly with nonprofit organizations by providing rapid response grants to expand local capacity to continue providing services. Higher priority will be given to organizations meeting the needs of vulnerable community members.
As the situation evolves and additional needs arise, the Response Fund’s priorities and scope may shift or expand to best serve Reno County throughout the crisis and recovery.
Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis, and a committee of community leaders will be assessing applications weekly. Funding should be received, if awarded, within two weeks of request.
If you have questions or are seeking grants for capacity building, collaboration, and innovation on a larger or systemic scale for recovery or resilience, contact the Community Foundation’s Sarah Blake at Sarah@HutchCF.org
