In times of crisis, it is paramount that emergency resources get deployed to the people who need them when they need them the most.

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected all areas of Virginia. There is a great deal of uncertainty and we know the most vulnerable in our community need immediate support. VCE agents are busy providing resources to combat food insecurity and developing educational tools to help families thrive during this difficult time.

Whether responding to today’s COVID-19 pandemic, or other challenges we may face in the future, the Virginia Cooperative Extension Emergency Relief Fund will support communities across the commonwealth by providing swift responses to emergency needs.
