Northeast Arkansas COVID-19 Response and Recovery Fund
As workers are losing wages and tips due to restaurant restrictions, business closures and reduced working hours, many nonprofits are experiencing an immediate increased demand for services and support for basic human needs. We expect this to continue to soar and are counting on community support to meet the rapidly growing need.
Your gift supports community resources that serve struggling families in Craighead, Cross, Greene, Jackson and Poinsett counties. As families face uncertain financial difficulties in the coming months, donations to the Northeast Arkansas COVID-19 Fund will help families to avoid eviction and utility disconnection.
Even in these uncertain times, no one is powerless to make a difference. Small acts, taken together across the country, can change the course of the pandemic, bolster those facing economic challenges, and protect the most vulnerable.
Your donation will ensure that—in collaboration with community partners and donors—we are able to meet the need for critical human services that our most vulnerable are facing during this crisis.
CRDC will facilitate the application process and disburse payments. If you need help with rent or utility payments due to lack of wages related to COVID-19, please call 870-333-5131. This line is dedicated to COVID-19, and a CRDC staff member will help you to complete the proper application and documentation process.
