About the Community Response Fund
The Covid-19 Community Response Fund is supporting local community service charities and not-for-profits meeting the urgent needs of vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19. The fund is a collaboration between Powell River & District United Way, Powell River Community Foundation, and First Credit Union, with support from the Regional Social Planner (representing the City of Powell River, qathet Regional District, and Tla’amin Nation) and funding from the Government of Canada. To date, the Community Response fund has allocated over $148,465 in the community.
What we fund
The Community Response Fund will support local charities providing services to vulnerable people affected by the pandemic. Services may include (but not limited to): food security; financial wellness; health and hygiene; home care or personal support services; information and navigation; legal supports; mental health and wellness; shelter; safety; social inclusion and learning, and transportation. Applications must clearly demonstrate a response to community needs arising from Covid-19.
Who can apply
Organizations in Powell River and the qathet Region providing front-line services to vulnerable populations impacted by COVID-19 are eligible to apply, including registered charities and other qualified donees. Check the Canada Revenue Agency list of qualified donees by clicking here.
How grants are awarded
The CRF partners have set up an Advisory Committee to assess funding requests and make final awards. The committee is comprised of two representatives from Powell River & District United Way, two representatives from the Powell River Community Foundation, and one representative from First Credit Union. The committee is supported by the regional Social Planner. Based on the nature of the funding request, we draw on the appropriate expertise of the Committee Advisors to make granting decisions that respond best to community need.
How to apply
Grant applications will be assessed in multiple intakes. The next deadline for application is October 30th, 2020 at 5 p.m.
