COVID-19 Response

Partners Needed in the Coronavirus Response

In January 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) requested the CDC Foundation activate our Emergency Response Fund to provide support to rapidly emerging response needs related to COVID-19. Support from individuals and organizations provides much needed funding to meet response needs where federal and state funding is not available or available quickly enough to meet the need.

Funds raised by the CDC Foundation through our Emergency Response Fund are being used to meet fast-emerging needs identified by CDC and public health authorities to help respond to the public health threat posed by this virus. These include additional support for state and local health departments, support for the global response, logistics, communications, data management, personal protective equipment, critical response supplies and more.
