What Gives!
In uncertain times one thing remains constant — we are facing this COVID-19 challenge together. In this spirit of togetherness, we are excited to report that local organizational funders are working together to plan collectively and respond to priority needs and issues in DeKalb County. These funders have partnered to create the DeKalb County COVID-19 Response Fund (DCCRF) advisory committee.
To aid in their response to areas of need, a new Fund was created. The DeKalb County COVID-19 Response Fund exists to expedite charitable resources to nonprofit and community organizations responding to COVID-19 related needs throughout DeKalb County. Resources are granted where they are needed most.

Thank you to the organizational funders and the DCCRF advisory committee members for giving of their time, talent, treasure, and ties for this important work throughout DeKalb County! 

The DeKalb County COVID-19 Response Grant program was designed to support the needs of local organizations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Prior to applying, all applicants should review the grant guidelines and application procedures.

IMPORTANT: For this initial round of DeKalb County COVID-19 Grants, the application timeline will be very short in order to expedite funds being utilized for immediate needs throughout DeKalb County.  Grant requests are due by Wednesday, April 8 at noon.

For application questions, please contact Grants Director Tiffany McQueen Lewis at tiffany@dekalbccf.org or by voicemail at 815-748-5383.
