Community Emergency Response Fund activated

The Com­mu­ni­ty Foun­da­tion has acti­vat­ed its Com­mu­ni­ty Emer­gency Response Fund to offer grants for orga­ni­za­tions whose oper­a­tions or ser­vices have been sig­nif­i­cant­ly dis­rupt­ed by the Teton Pass closure.

Grant­i­ng pri­or­i­ty is giv­en to orga­ni­za­tions pro­vid­ing the fol­low­ing services:

  • Hous­ing
  • Trans­porta­tion
  • Food pro­duc­tion, sup­ply, deliv­ery, access
  • Edu­ca­tion or childcare
  • Health­care (includ­ing men­tal healthcare)
  • Care of seniors or peo­ple with disabilities
  • Care of animals

Appli­cant orga­ni­za­tions must serve those who live or work in Teton Coun­ty and be acute­ly affect­ed by the Teton Pass closure.

Please vis­it our grants appli­ca­tion plat­form to access the grant appli­ca­tion, which is open through July 15. Requests will be reviewed weekly.

As the Foun­da­tion gains more infor­ma­tion on the antic­i­pat­ed impacts of this emer­gency, we will reeval­u­ate the length of this grant pro­gram. Orga­ni­za­tions with ongo­ing needs will be con­sid­ered for future funding.
