COVID-19 Prevention & Response Fund

Posted by Mayor's Office of Public Engagement on April 13, 2021

The COVID-19 Prevention & Response Fund is a community-led effort to invest in neighborhood-based solutions to urgent needs related to COVID-19. The Fund ultimately seeks to increase rates of vaccinations in communities that are disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and to address the challenges exacerbated as a result of the pandemic.

The fund is also partnering with the City of Philadelphia’s Philly Counts office, which will support grantees and cultivate a community of practice. Philly Counts will provide information, training and resource materials as well as logistical and operational support that will allow Fund recipients to maximize their efforts, and leverage every dollar, to raise awareness in communities about COVID-19 and increase uptake of the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Fund will accept applications from 501(c)(3) organizations, businesses and individuals working in the designated communities in Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia and counties. Funds will be distributed as general operating support grants, and will be awarded based on activities that provide direct relief to communities located in priority funding areas and towards projects addressing the funding priorities.
