United Way of Delaware County, in its role as community problem solver, has established a COVID -19 Community Response Fund to provide emergency grant assistance to local organizations that are providing critical services in the areas of food, necessary supplies, rent/utility assistance and health services as a result of increased need due to layoffs, closures or reduced hours.  All assistance will remain local in Delaware County. Grants shall be used for specific direct service expenses relating to the Pandemic. 100% of funds raised for the COVID-19 Community Response Fund are provided to organizations helping families in need because United Way is donating our staff expense. The funds will be distributed by United Way to qualifying organizations, and all funded organizations will complete a mandatory final report that outlines how the funds were used and total number of clients served. We truly appreciate and want to acknowledge the below gifts that have been made to help with this community-wide effort!
