The Piqua Emergency Response was established by The Foundation in April to support nonprofit organizations serving the unique needs of the Piqua community in the midst of the COVID-19 virus outbreak.
The Foundation committed $50,000 to the emergency fund and accepted an additional $14,800 in contributions from local individuals and businesses. Nonprofit organizations serving Piqua residents have received 16 grants for a total of more than $51,000 for emergency response activities. The services supported include telehealth care for remote medical attention, increased personal protective equipment for staff and volunteers, and direct stipends to local residents for food, fuel, utility and rent assistance.
As of July 1, funds remain in the account, and applications will continue to be accepted until money is expended.
