COVID-19 JOINT RESPONSE GRANTS
River Cities United Way, Lake Havasu City, Lake Havasu Area Chamber of Commerce, Havasu Community Health Foundation, and the Better Business Bureau are leading a countywide collaborative for businesses of the community affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Relief Fund and Donations meeting increased service demand: Organizations serving Lake Havasu City’s most vulnerable populations impacted by widespread shutdown of schools (child care, school supplies, loss of access to technology, food insecurities, transportation, mental health, etc.) and social distancing measures impacting places of employment (loss of wages).
Operational Capacity and Business Continuity: Unrestricted funding enabling an organization to carry out its mission and adjust its business models to meet the needs of their staff and clients. These general operating support grants may be used to cover day-to-date activities or outgoing expenses such as administrative salaries, utilities, office supplies, technology maintenance, etc., as well as the projected costs, capital, and technology purchases to provide alternative modes of service.
Organizations: Horizon Community Bank will provide grants to business organizations serving all regions of Lake Havasu City.
Grants are processed on a rolling basis and processed within a few business days by a community board of volunteers.
A report from your organization on the use of the COVID-19 Community Disaster Relief Fund will be due within 13 moths of the grant award, and can be delivered 30 days following the project completion to confirm that needs have been met. We just want impact stories we can share so donors can see how their money is impacting the community.
