Emergency Response

4-CT Statewide COVID-19 Relief Fund

2020 - $150,000

4-CT created a fund to provide emergency assistance to Connecticut residents who are unable to receive federal or state COVID-19 relief because of their immigration status. Community-based organizations identify families in need and write them “prescriptions” for financial assistance. Families receiving assistance will also be connected with community health centers and offered health services, including COVID-19 testing, that they might not otherwise receive.
