NEW! Richmond Rapid Response Fund (R3F)

The Richmond Rent Program is proud to be part of the West Contra Costa COVID Community Cares Coalition. Launched the week after shelter-in -place took effect, the coalition engages over 90 cross-sector stakeholders including community partners and non-profits, the City, the West Contra Costa Unified School District, the County, local and regional coalitions, and funders. 

Richmond Rapid Response Fund (R3F) was born from this community-centered process. The R3F will provide, coordinate, and advocate for direct resources and supports to heal our community in the wake of these ongoing crises and systemic racism. Beyond this pandemic, the fund will create healing centered, racially just policies, practices, and investments for long term community transformation.
