Additional funding requests will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the current crisis and recovery phases. At this time, priority is given to requests for needs not served by other federal, state and local resources as it relates to food security, services for older adults, child care services, mental health and wellbeing, and basic human needs.

Since March 23, the Crisis Response Fund has raised more than $941,000 of its $1 million goal from individuals, community organizations and local foundations.

The fund is administered by the United Way of Southern Chautauqua County on behalf of a coalition of philanthropy, government and business partners including the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, Northern Chautauqua Community Foundation and United Way of Northern Chautauqua County.

Decision Committee. This nine-member group (Kathy Burch, Rachel Foley, Tyler Gotowka, Vince Horrigan, Lori Jafarjian, Dana Lundberg, Randy Ordines, Mayor Willie Rosas, and Linda Swanson) meets each Monday to discuss requests and approve all grant-making. The criteria used to evaluate requests is unchanged from Day 1 – meeting the emergent needs of organizations on the frontline of the COVID-19 response with a focus on older adults and vulnerable families. We strive to complement existing funding and require unprecedented levels of collaboration.
