Community Resilience Fund & Covid-19

Supporting an equitable, long-term recovery

In 2021, the Community Resilience Fund supported Omaha-area nonprofits serving communities disproportionately affected by Covid-19. Thanks to generous community support, 37 nonprofits received a total of $527,942.75.

What Action the Fund Supported

To help address the emerging, long-term needs of our community from Covid-19, we offered grants to nonprofits that provide programs and resources in five key focus areas.

Supporting enrichment programs and activities to reverse disparities that grew due to remote learning and other educational disruptions.

Alleviating operational uncertainty until organizations can fully reopen and restabilize earned revenue through programs, performances, and exhibits.

Meeting the increased need for services and working to improve the overall mental health system.

Ensuring people can safely stay in their homes through legal assistance or financial support.

Helping people gain new skills or education to find and secure stable employment.
