One Louisville: COVID-19 Response Fund

On March 18, Mayor Greg Fischer announced that Louisville Metro Government, the Community Foundation of Louisville, Metro United Way and other community partners have created an emergency response fund to rapidly deploy resources to individuals and community-based organizations impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak in our region.

The One Louisville: COVID-19 Response Fund will provide flexible funding resources for rental assistance, childcare assistance, transportation aid, food access, utility assistance and other support as determined, via $1,000 payments to eligible households. Funds will also be made available to community-based organizations that are being hit hard by the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.




Funds will be managed by the Community Foundation of Louisville, with distribution to households managed by Louisville Metro Government’s Office of Resilience & Community Services. Funding to community groups will be directed by the Community Foundation of Louisville, in coordination with Metro United Way and fund partners.
