Salt Lake City— The Road Home, which provides assistance to individuals and families experiencing homelessness in Salt Lake City and along the Wasatch Front, today announced it received a grant from US Bank’s Market Impact Fund program to help respond to pressing community needs caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The $25,000 grant to the Road Home is part of US Bank’s expedited annual $1 million Market Impact Fund grant program for 30 local nonprofits across the country that are working to support small businesses, maintain safe housing and ensure accessibility to critical human services by the communities’ most economically vulnerable populations.
In addition to providing emergency shelter and services, The Road Home also works with partners including Fourth Street Clinic and the Utah Coronavirus Task Force to ensure the health and safety of residents, employees and the greater community.
“We are thrilled to have been chosen to receive this much needed grant that allows us to continue to deliver our necessary services that will help so many individuals and families experiencing homelessness in our community,” said Michelle Flynn, executive director of The Road Home.
In addition to philanthropic support, US Bank has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic by instituting a premium pay program for front-line employees, modifying personal and small business products for customers, and other changes.
