ROCKFORD – Rosecrance is pleased to announce it has received a $100,000 grant from the Illinois COVID-19 Response Fund (ICRF) that will help sustain critical services in the community.

The ICRF is designed to provide flexible funding to local nonprofit organizations across Illinois to supply essential resources to the individuals and households most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was established by the United Way of Illinois and the Alliance of Illinois Community Foundations, in collaboration with the Office of the Governor, to raise funds from individual, corporate, and foundation donors to be disbursed to nonprofit organizations across the state serving individuals, families and communities hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are grateful for fellow Illinoisans who value the critical services we provide for so many people,” said Rosecrance Health Network President Dr. Dave Gomel. “Because of that support, we will continue to provide hope and healing to those who need it most throughout the pandemic.” 

The fund has provided financial resources to local community foundations and nonprofits to support residents in need of emergency food and basic supplies, interim housing and shelter, primary healthcare services, utility and financial assistance, supports for children, people of color and other vulnerable populations, and nonprofit safety and operations assistance.

“At a time of such significant need for families across our state, this is an all-hands on deck moment,” said former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker. “Thanks to the Illinois COVID-19 Response Fund’s charitable contributors, nonprofits like Rosecrance can help us ensure that struggling families have access to the vital resources and support needed as we all face this battle together.”
