The COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund from the Ottawa Community Foundation is a response to an unprecedented situation.
This rapid-response fund supports urgent issues, particularly those being experienced disproportionately within vulnerable sectors. This includes those sectors without access to other supports, such as government subsidies. Priorities are changing, sometimes hour by hour, and this fund is designed to respond to pressing needs.
The fund is seeded with reserves from the Ottawa Community Foundation, along with support from donors and partners.
