Funding Recipients

Based in historically exploited communities, our 27 community-led partners continue to  work around the clock to support us and our neighbors through the COVID-19 pandemic. Their critical relief efforts include distributing food and supplies, providing rental assistance, managing multi-lingual help hotlines and more, while continuing to organize and lead policy campaigns for a just recovery.

These 27 community-led relief efforts were selected according to funding criteria and allocation guidelines developed by the MRF's grassroots Advisory Board.  Sustain their critical work by donating today to support these essential front-line relief efforts and help build community resilience for the long haul.
