Overview:

Community COVID-19 United Relief Fund

The Central Alabama Community Foundation and River Region United Way are collaborating to address the most vital needs of people across the River Region area of Central Alabama and the Wiregrass.

The Community COVID-19 United Relief Fund will focus on 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations supporting basic needs and/or health and wellness efforts related to the COVID-19 emergency and its aftermath.

Track 1: Community Critical Needs (Established April 1, 2020)

The first track will focus on 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations supporting basic needs and/or health and wellness efforts related to the COVID-19 emergency and its aftermath.

The grants will be limited to $2,500 per 501(c)3 nonprofit organization’s application (requests for individual assistance are not eligible).

Applications will be accepted and responded to on a continuing basis. Organizations receiving a grant may apply for additional funds after expending the initial award.

Track 2: Organizational Critical Needs (Established July 1, 2020)

The second track of grants to the Community COVID-19 United Relief Fund will address the financial impact of COVID-19 on nonprofits’ organizational capacity to provide community services.

Eligible applicants must be a 501(c)3 nonprofit in compliance with IRS guidelines after having applied and received approval through a designation letter from the IRS. 

This track will provide resources to address the financial impact of COVID-19 on eligible nonprofits’ organizational capacity to provide community services by funding projects for unexpected infrastructure and equipment repairs and/or necessary adaptations to operations to address COVID-19 best practices.

The original track, providing funds for programming that meets basic needs and wellness efforts for individuals impacted by COVID-19, would continue to accept applications concurrently with the new track. Both tracks would accept and review grants on a rolling basis. The original track would remain with awards up to $2,500 per grant, maximum of 4 grants per organization. The new track would award up to $5,000 per grant, maximum 2 grants per organization.
