CoMoHELPS is a collaborative effort of Boone County, The Community Foundation of Central Missouri, the City of Columbia, Heart of Missouri United Way, and Veterans United Foundation. We are working with local nonprofits, community partners and government agencies to quickly determine and meet the needs of our region. Organizations adapting to public health recommendations for mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and/or serving emergent community needs stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged to apply for COVID-19 funds with the following stipulations in mind:

  • Organizations must be able to demonstrate (1) a tracked increase in service needs or (2) a reduction in funding or (3) a need for funds to adapt service delivery and/or administrative procedures as a result of the pandemic. Organizations may compare service needs year-over-year or any time frame that demonstrates the need in relation to the pandemic.
  • Funding requests may not be duplicative of other funding sources.
To apply for these funds, please complete this application, which is intended to be a low barrier to request funding and get resources where they are needed as quickly as possible.

Please contact Rachel Delcau (rdelcau@uwheartmo.org), Director of Community Impact at Heart of Missouri United Way, or John Baker, Executive Director at the Community Foundation of Central Missouri (jdbaker@cfcmfoundation.org) if you have any questions about this application.
 
Information obtained in the application will be utilized to better understand the needs and prioritize resources in the community. Please provide detailed responses.
 
Requests for funds will be reviewed by Boone County, The Community Foundation of Central Missouri, the City of Columbia, Heart of Missouri United Way, and Veterans United Foundation. Organizations may be contacted to provide additional information as needed. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the crisis.
