2020 Grants

In March 2020, CHF’s Board of Directors approved funding for the creation of an emergency COVID-19 fund to support grassroots organizations that are providing direct services to community members and also engaged in system change work. We focused on low-income communities of color in our region that are disproportionately impacted by the pandemic.
