#BetterTogether - COVID-19 Fundraiser for Emergency Grants
When a crisis arises, cooperative resident-owned communities continually prove they are #BetterTogether. ROC USA is raising money to provide emergency grants for ROC households directly affected by COVID-19. These grants will provide site rent assistance for recipients. Each dollar raised will be matched by ROC USA and ROC Association, up to $10,000.
COVID-19 Emergency Grant Program
Have you or a member of your family received a COVID-19 diagnosis? ROC USA is offering rent assistance grants to help ease the financial burden of this global pandemic. Residents of ROCs in need of emergency assistance must first complete an application form. If it is determined that you may be eligible for assistance, you will be contacted by a member of the ROC USA staff. Before filling out an emergency assistance inquiry form, carefully read through the eligibility criteria and supporting documentation requirements.
