Responding to COVID-19 in Arkansas

Arkansas Community Foundation has established a statewide COVID-19 Relief Fund. Your contribution will be pooled with contributions from other Arkansans to help our neighbors affected by the pandemic.

How will the Arkansas COVID-19 Relief Fund be used?
  • In the short term, the fund will provide rapid-response grants to nonprofit organizations working on the front lines. This critical funding will enable them to maintain operations and support the increased demand for services. Learn more about grants.
  • In the intermediate term, the fund will focus on addressing the ongoing economic needs of Arkansans affected by the pandemic and shoring up critical systems in our state, such as healthcare, emergency food distribution, schools, etc.

While Arkansas Community Foundation does not make direct grants to individuals, we can and do award funding to nonprofit organizations that provide individual financial assistance to their clients.

Here’s a list of grants that have been awarded so far. Note that we are continuing to review additional proposals that have been submitted and will add to this list as more grants are approved.
