CHE Resiliency Fund 

In June 2020, CHE's Board of Trustees established the Resiliency Fund which will provide up to $2.5 million over the next year to support the community’s efforts to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. CHE also established new funding priorities around health equity, human connection, and embracing opportunity.

The Resiliency Fund will complement the efforts of the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department, city leadership, state and federal initiatives, and medical professionals as Lincoln’s non-profits and public agencies move forward from urgent pandemic response through recovery to a resilient, thriving community for all.

The CHE Resiliency Fund will encompass the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 grant cycles.

The Fall 2020 grant cycle will be a one-stage grant cycle. Applications for the Fall 2020 cycle are due by noon on Friday, August 21 and must be submitted online.

An Applicant Workshop for the Fall 2020 grant cycle was offered via webinar on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. The webinar recording is available here. Download copies of the Applicant Workshop handout and PowerPoint slides at the links below.
