The COVID-19 health crisis has dramatically changed the economic and social landscape of our nation, with communities of color particularly hard-hit by the pandemic. Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) communities in particular have endured the impacts of this pandemic longer than most communities – a direct result of xenophobia and racism.
National CAPACD’s network of community-based organizations have risen to the challenge of serving, mobilizing and protecting their communities in many inspiring and innovative ways. In acknowledgement of the additional economic strain this work has placed on organizations and communities, National CAPACD has raised funds from philanthropic sources to establish an AAPI Community Resilience Fund.
The AAPI Community Resilience Fund will provide general operating support to organizations that prevent displacement of the most vulnerable AAPIs from their communities in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. We seek to stem the tide of displacement that will most impact low-income tenants, homeowners and small businesses during this public health and economic crisis. The fund will be administered in multiple rounds throughout 2020.
Round 2 of this fund opens on August 3, 2020 and closes Friday August 14 at 8pm PT. All questions about this RFP should be directed to RFP@nationalcapacd.org.
