AAPI Community Resilience Fund Awards 21 Organizations in Round 1, Round 2 Opened August

National CAPACD is pleased to announce that 21 organizations have been selected to receive funding from Round 1 of the AAPI Community Resilience Fund. The Fund provides general operating support to organizations around the country that have been responding to the social and economic needs of low-income AAPI communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. All of the 21 selected organizations have been doing tremendous work to provide immediate relief to their communities and neighborhoods, playing a significant role to ensure that their clients are not displaced by the economic fallout of the pandemic. Please join us in congratulating the following organizations:

Arkansas Coalition of Marshallese
Asian American Resource Workshop
Asian Economic Development Association
Asian Law Alliance
Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon
CAAAV Organizing Asian Communities
Coalition for a Better Chinese American Community

We received an overwhelming response to the AAPI Community Resilience Fund request for proposals. All applications detailed the hard work that organizations are doing with too little resources. The need has significantly outpaced the available resources nationwide, and there must be a deeper investment in the trusted, culturally competent organizations that are reaching the most vulnerable AAPIs during this pandemic.

National CAPACD appreciates the supporters of this fund: JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Wells Fargo Foundation, Citi Community Development, and the Kresge Foundation.

Round 2 opened on Monday, August 3, 2020 and closes Friday August 14, 2020. More information about Round 2 can be found here. All questions about the AAPI Community Resilience Fund can be directed to rfp@nationalcapacd.org.
