To date, CFAAC has distributed 58 grants totaling $122,000 to 47 local nonprofits providing funding for food security and support for basic human needs during the COVID-19 crisis.
CFAAC established the Community Crisis Response Fund in 2018 in order to react quickly and efficiently to unforeseen needs in the community during times of crisis. This Designated Fund provides flexible financial support to trusted nonprofit partners across Anne Arundel County who are responding to the most critical needs of our community. Currently, all funds raised through CFAAC’s Community Crisis Response Fund are being used to meet the fast-emerging, immediate, and long-term needs posed by the COVID-19 virus.
