COVID-19 Frontline Relief Grant Update
46 LCIF Grants Awarded Totaling US$1,496,603
LCIF is giving priority consideration to support regions with extreme rates of confirmed COVID-19 cases. The focus will be on addressing those needs that exist within local medical and emergency management systems that are coordinating efforts with the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDD) guidelines.
For consideration, applications need to:
- Follow the Emergency (EMR) grant criteria of having at least 100+ people infected (confirmed cases) in the immediate area/district.
- US$10,000 maximum grant amount.
- Funds available only to address active and immediate cases; not future outbreaks. Disaster Preparedness grants are excluded.
- Funds should be used for Lions to work with local medical and emergency management services that are addressing the outbreak. This could be for sourcing medical supplies, quarantine-related expenses, etc. for those infected.
- Funds may not cover personal expenses for those infected or quarantined.
- Another option is to consider Multiple District level grants, as appropriate, for areas with a significant number of cases (5,000+) over several districts.
- All requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
