The NDN Collective is designing a COVID-19 response project to provide immediate relief to some of the most underserved communities in the country. It’s intended to provide immediate relief to those in need, everything from medical supplies to food delivery.

The goal is to quickly distribute resources to organizations, tribes and individuals with essentials within the the next 15-to-45 days, providing gap services during the pandemic.

Nick Tilsen, NDN President and CEO says, “We know the federal money, just because it’s the government, is going to take some time to get there and so could we use our infrastructure and some of our philanthropic partners to drive some resources into the Native communities to start filling in those gaps.”

The grant process is set up to be user friendly and with a rapid response, click here for the link.
