Horizon Foundation commits over $1 million in COVID-19 response grants
Moving aggressively to fulfill its mission to improve the health of Howard County residents, the Horizon Foundation has committed over $1 million in grants to meet emergency health needs caused by the coronavirus outbreak. On April 13, the Foundation announced $1 million in grants focused on supporting the physical and mental health of frontline health care workers and enabling safe distancing for vulnerable community members including those in the county’s only general homeless shelter and in residential programs for people with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
The Foundation also has coordinated COVID-19 relief efforts with the Community Foundation of Howard County, United Way of Central Maryland and Women’s Giving Circle of Howard County through HoCoRespond.com, which recently announced $205,000 in emergency grants to nonprofits raised from local donors to provide assistance with food, housing, child care and health care.
