Covid-19 Response fund update

June 19, 2020

Through a collaboration with the Hamilton Community Foundation and the Butler County United Way, the Butler County Covid-19 Response fund has supported emergent needs of local nonprofits.  The pool of funds available for distribution was $450,000 and as of June 18, 2020, the following grants were awarded.

As a result of this support, the application process has been suspended, pending the finalization of the remaining approvals which has depleted the fund.  We are evaluating next steps and planning for the future as we move into the recovery phase of this pandemic.
