Your donations to the Friends of Tulare County Emergency Relief Fund Program will support emergencies in a wide-scale effort to protect the safety of persons and property in Tulare County. With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting Tulare County in March 2020 and the March 2023 floods, local emergencies have taken a toll on County resources. The public has looked to various County departments for solutions and action.
The County has a need to develop additional resources to resolve gaps as well as be evolutionary in how it handles needs, messages, and deliverables, as well as assisting health care and community partners who bring a unique service to the county. Monetary donations received will be utilized depending upon the local emergency need. The Friends of Tulare County Board of Directors will oversee this program, including decisions on use of donations to help alleviate potential gaps for Tulare County, whose residential population continues to grow and currently exceeds more than 482,000 (as of 2023 by United States Census Bureau).
