Emergency Resources

The First Coast Relief Fund was grateful to distribute nearly $5.4 million in COVID-19 relief funds directly to 112 nonprofits, enabling them to best support the community during the peak of the COVID-19 crisis. While the Relief Fund’s grant cycles are currently closed, we understand there are many people still very much in need of everyday assistance. Below is a collection of community resources where you can find help.
