NEWS Receives Fire Relief Preliminary Funding to Help VictimsNAPA VALLEY COMMUNITY FOUNDATION DISTRIBUTES $565,000 TO SUPPORT THOSE AFFECTED BY FIRES Napa Valley Community Foundation (NVCF) distributed $565,000 in grants today that will fund trusted community-based nonprofit agencies to support families and individuals impacted by the Napa Fire Complex who are in immediate need of assistance. The grants are earmarked for critical disaster-related needs, such as temporary shelter, food, medical care, mental health services, emergency childcare, transportation, resource/referral and case management services, legal services, and other human services for affected communities in Napa County. The grants were made from the Napa Valley Community Disaster Relief Fund, which is managed by NVCF and was established with a $10 million lead gift from Napa Valley Vintners following the 2014 South Napa Earthquake. After all phases of quake-related relief programs concluded last year, the Disaster Relief Fund had a balance of approximately $2.5 million, which is the starting point for current relief efforts for the Napa Fire Complex.
