COVID-19 Response Package

Louisiana Well Again: COVID-19 Response Package is a three-phase, $1.1 million grants and gift package to address Louisiana’s most pressing needs in the face of the pandemic and build future resiliency for the state’s businesses and workers.

$100,000 Gift

Phase 1 was a $100,000 gift to Feeding Louisiana that provided 400,000 meals and contributed to the resilience of the hardest hit Louisiana citizens.

$500,000 Grants Program

Phase 2 was a $500,000 grants program that helped hospitals across the state support the work of COVID-19 frontline healthcare workers. Funds were distributed in June 2020.

$500,000 Grants Program

Phase 3 is a $500,000 grants program focused on addressing some of the long-existing physical wellness vulnerabilities that create an increased risk of severe illness and injury. These pre-existing vulnerabilities have made many Louisiana citizens particularly susceptible to COVID-19. This phase has up to $500,000 in total funding available with the projected median grant of approximately $25,000.

PHASE 2

Support for Frontline Healthcare Workers

In an ongoing effort to stem the spread of COVID-19 and help alleviate the personal and economic strain on some of those most affected by the disease, the foundation awarded $500,000 to 24 hospitals and hospital foundations to support frontline healthcare workers.

PHASE 3

Support for Long-Existing Physical Wellness Vulnerabilities

Phase 3 of the LWCC Foundation’s Louisiana Well Again: COVID-19 Response Package is focused on addressing some of the long-existing physical wellness vulnerabilities that create an increased risk of severe illness and injury. These pre-existing vulnerabilities have made many Louisiana citizens particularly susceptible to COVID-19. These vulnerabilities are defined by the Louisiana Department of Health and include, but are not limited to:

Obesity

Hypertension/high blood pressure

Diabetes

Cardiac Diseases

Chronic Kidney Disease
