COVID-19: Responding to Vulnerable Communities
When the initial societal impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic began to take shape in the first months of 2020, we at Citi took action quickly, making philanthropic commitments for immediate, on-the-ground relief as well as for longer-term economic recovery efforts.
The COVID-19 pandemic brought to the forefront the vast racial, economic and social inequalities that exist in our communities globally, which is why many of our efforts focused on communities of color that were facing disproportionate burdens from the virus.
Citi and the Citi Foundation provided support to organizations — small and large — all around the world: food donations and meal kits, support for housing stability loans, emergency child-care programs, medical and personal protective equipment, COVID-19 screening and testing funds and more. We offered a range of different types of assistance to customers affected by COVID-19. And by participating in the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program, we aimed to help our small business clients keep as many employees on their payrolls as possible.
