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. 

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.

Eligibility:

  • 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.
