In March 2020, Governor Andy Beshear established the Team Kentucky Fund to provide help to Kentuckians experiencing an employment-related financial hardship during the COVID-19 public health emergency. A committee, led by Lieutenant Governor Jacqueline Coleman and co-chaired by five former Kentucky lieutenant governors, was formed to identify and implement strategies that will maximize the impact of the Team Kentucky Fund.

Kentucky's Community Action Network is honored to be selected as a strategic partner of Team Kentucky. Our role is to assist with the collection and evaluation of applications for assistance from the Team Kentucky Fund. Applications can be submitted via an Online Application Program developed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky or, if necessary, a paper application. Kentucky's Community Action Agencies will distribute available financial support from the Team Kentucky Fund to eligible applicants. Through our statewide network and robust infrastructure, we are eager to assist in dispensing the generous Team Kentucky Fund donations as quickly as possible to those in need.

Utilizing Team Kentucky Funds, Community Action Kentucky will provide eligible applicants with financial vouchers of up to $1,000 per household. Vouchers may be used to help offset the following approved expenses: Rent, Mortgage, Food/Grocery and Utility Costs. Applicants must be able to provide proof of adverse financial impact due to COVID-19 under the standards established by the Commonwealth.
