Rapid Response Fund

In response to the new and renewed threats our communities face, we created the Rapid Response Fund to provide funding to groups and organizations to lead the work that will protect our friends, families, and our communities. Quick and timely grants are awarded to groups across the Northwest who are organizing responses as needs continue to emerge in their home communities.
