“…we are prioritizing community-based organizations serving older adults disproportionately suffering from the COVID-19 crisis.”
“As the impact of COVID-19 continues to grow, so does the scale of the response. Our goal for the first iteration of this fund is to raise $5 million. But our work will not stop there. We intend to continue raising monies in order to transform the aging network and how we support older adults.”
The National Council on Aging COVID-19 Community Response Fund raises and distributes funds through donations to support organizations providing high-quality senior support services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Funding is distributed to senior support organizations and will be prioritized by geographic areas most affected by the health, economic, and social impacts of COVID-19.
