Local nonprofits on the front lines of responding to the COVID-19 crisis are among the organizations that will share $2.1 million from the COVID-19 Response Fund created by the Rhode Island Foundation and United Way of Rhode Island.

House of Hope Community Development Corporation in Warwick is one of the local organizations that received funding in the latest round of grants from the fund, which now has awarded $5.7 million since last month. The housing and social services agency received $75,000 for operational support like technology that enables staff to work remotely as well as direct client support, including grocery gift cards, tents, sleeping bags, bottled water, ready-to-eat food and personal hygiene items.
