The Omaha Community Foundation announced that they have launched the Community Resilience Fund, a new community fund that will help support local nonprofits as they work to recover from COVID-19. The Fund is designed to complement local and federal support and prioritize an equitable, long-term community recovery focused on the following five areas: Learning Recovery, Arts & Culture, Housing, Mental Health, and Workforce & Economic Opportunity. It follows the closure of the COVID-19 Response Fund, launched one year ago to respond to the immediate impacts of the pandemic.
To explain the fund and the work to be done, Anne Meysenburg, Director of Community Investment, and Ally Freeman, Director of Communications, spent a little time chatting with Mike Hogan of KIOS-FM.
