Black Hawk County COVID-19 Cooperative Disaster Response Fund
CFNEIA
Special Project

The Black Hawk County COVID-19 Cooperative Disaster Response Fund provides support to organizations assisting in the response and recovery efforts of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic. The intent of the fund is to be responsive to nonprofits serving Black Hawk County that are providing basic needs services and organizations working with individuals and families who have been disproportionately impacted by the public health and economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic.

Online gifts can be made to the fund by clicking on the “Give Today” button below. Gifts can also be directed to the Community Foundation of Northeast Iowa, 3117 Greenhill Circle, Cedar Falls, IA 50613. Checks should be made out to Black Hawk County COVID-19 Cooperative Disaster Response Fund. Online gifts are strongly encouraged to have funds accessible for quick response to needs.

Grants from the disaster response fund will be administered in collaboration with organizations coordinating pandemic response efforts, including Black Hawk County COAD (Community Organizations Active in Disaster). Funds will be released on a rolling basis as fundraising continues throughout the COVID-19 disaster, making it possible to move resources quickly and to adapt to evolving needs in subsequent phases of the crisis recovery efforts.

The Black Hawk County COVID-19 Cooperative Disaster Response Fund was collaboratively established by CFNEIA, the Otto Schoitz Foundation, the Cedar Valley United Way and the Guernsey Foundation. Other funding partners include the Cedar Falls Community Foundation, the Waterloo Community Foundation, MidAmerican Energy, and CUNA Mutual Group Foundation.
