The District of Taylor is set to receive a $7,000 response grant to combat the impacts of COVID-19. 

The funding comes from the Vancouver Foundation and is being given through the Northeast Regional Community Foundation. The funds are available for immediate release and the intent is for a rapid response.

“The money’s available, we’d like to give it away,” said CAO Andrew Young, noting funds can be either given to one non-profit or split between two for $3,500 each.
