Clubs and districts can apply for Rotary disaster response grants to support COVID-19 relief efforts. These grants can be used to provide supplies and medical care and to support rebuilding efforts. 
The Rotary Foundation Trustees recently approved placing $1 million in our Disaster Response Fund to make these grants immediately available for applications related to COVID-19. 
Rotarians care for and protect people in their local communities and around the world.
The money remaining in our District Grant Fund was quickly committed to COVID-19 relief projects submitted by our clubs. There are several on the waiting list. We have included these in a disaster response grant application which we have submitted.

The initial disaster relief fund was US$1,000,000. This went quickly, some of it for Australian bushfire relief prior to the pandemic. TRF have transferred an additional US$2,000,000 into the fund which will fund 80 Grants at US$25,000 per grant. 

But there are over 100 requests ahead of ours. TRF will be looking at additional ways to fund the applications, so at this time we can only wait our turn.
