The state has partnered with OneStar Foundation to create the Texas COVID Relief Fund to help organizations working to support local communities.

The funds will be distributed through grants to organizations focusing on community and economic development, healthcare and education, as well as those helping the vulnerable and underserved.

"There is nothing more powerful than Texans helping Texans, and the Texas COVID Relief Fund is another way we can come together to support those in need and help our communities respond to the COVID-19 pandemic," said Governor Greg Abbott. "I thank the OneStar Foundation and their partners for their commitment to helping Texans through these trying times. By coming together and supporting one another, we will overcome this challenge."

"Communities across Texas are stepping up to meet the needs of everyday Texans in heroic ways,” said Chris Bugbee, President and CEO of OneStar Foundation. “We are grateful for Governor Abbott’s leadership in providing the Texas COVID Relief Fund as a resource to embolden efforts across the state to meet the needs of our neighbors impacted by the pandemic.”
