COVID-19 Response Fund

COVID-19 Response Fund Icon The COVID-19 pandemic is disproportionately impacting the most vulnerable people in our community, many of whom are Alliance members. In recognition of the urgent and increasing COVID-19 related challenges facing Alliance members, the Alliance established a $1,000,000 COVID-19 Response Fund. Through this fund, the Alliance is quickly dispersing funds to non-profits providing aid to impacted individuals and families in Merced, Monterey and Santa Cruz counties. The COVID-19 Response Fund supports organizations addressing the urgent food security needs of Medi-Cal members. The fund also provides support to meet the basic health-related needs of our members in each county, such as hygiene and sanitation supplies.
