About this funder:
NOTE: While we are no longer soliciting applications specifically for grants from our COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund, we recognize that the pandemic continues to have wide-ranging impacts on youth and the nonprofits that serve them.
Emergency Relief Grant Application
A Better Chicago is now accepting grant applications for projects and initiatives providing assistance to low-income youth and families experiencing significant hardship due to COVID-19.
Funds will support the urgent needs of young people and their families, with a specific focus on Black and Latinx youth due to the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on these communities and the systemic inequities that exist in Chicago. Grants may be requested from nonprofit organizations for the following needs:
- Providing direct financial support (e.g. stipends to students who have lost work)
- Providing essential goods and services (e.g. groceries)
- Rapidly innovating to continue delivering high-quality programming (e.g. virtual instruction)
Grant amount and duration will vary based on need, potential impact, and available funds. We anticipate making grants ranging from $20K-$100K over three to six months.

- We are currently providing funding for organizations serving youth and families in Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Lake County, McHenry County, and Will County.
