Description of Program and Relief
Greater Emporia Area Disaster Relief Fund
The Emporia Community Foundation, Emporia Main Street, KVOE, and United Way of the Flint Hills are pleased to announce the creation of the Greater Emporia Area Disaster Relief Fund. The four agencies joined forces to broaden the reach of the existing Lyon County Disaster Relief Fund in order to support the needs of businesses, nonprofits, and individuals in Chase, Coffey, Greenwood, Lyon, Morris, Osage, Wabaunsee, and Woodson counties surrounding COVID-19 relief. The Business Jump Start Grant will provide small locally owned businesses with small grants for the purpose of building inventory and service capacity as business restrictions surrounding the pandemic are relaxed or eliminated.
The Greater Emporia Area Disaster Relief Fund will have multiple phases of funding to address both the immediate and longer-term needs related to this crisis. The initial focus is on the medical community. Future phases will focus on economic needs. Priority will be given to local organizations working to meet the basic needs of those most significantly impacted by this crisis.
