Project Resilience Launched in Ulster County

Posted on: March 19th, 2020 by Brent Gotsch

Ulster Coun­ty has recent­ly announced the launch of Project Resilience. Project Resilience is a com­mu­ni­ty fund and local food dis­tri­b­u­tion effort to sup­port res­i­dents impact­ed by COVID-19. The effort will include: a com­mu­ni­ty fund, in part­ner­ship with the Unit­ed Way; an online por­tal for any­one in need to ask for help; a robust food dis­tri­b­u­tion net­work; and a part­ner­ship pro­gram for busi­ness­es and com­mu­ni­ty groups to pro­vide food and oth­er crit­i­cal ser­vices. Res­i­dents in need can apply online to receive meals and oth­er sup­port from par­tic­i­pat­ing local restau­rants and com­mu­ni­ty groups. UCAT (Ulster Coun­ty Area Tran­sit) will be par­tial­ly repur­posed to work with munic­i­pal­i­ties and com­mu­ni­ty orga­ni­za­tions to deliv­er meals to res­i­dents in need.

For more infor­ma­tion about Project Resilience please read the press release. Please see the Project Resilience home­page to request food or make a dona­tion.
