The Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to allocate emergency funding for food procurement, storage and distribution being provided by organizations within the community in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Proposals were accepted from May 13, 2020 through May 20, 2020 from a wide range of non-profit organizations to supplement and expand ongoing efforts in response to the pandemic.

A total of 33 applications were received from local nonprofits requesting a total of $1,650,328.40. Applications were evaluated for potential funding and all qualified applicants, meeting the criteria previously established by the Board, have been recommended for funding. The requested amount for each organization is not fully funded because the total applications exceeded the approved COVID-19 donation of $1 million.
