Overview:

ETF's Neighbor to Neighbor Disaster Relief Fund provides timely disaster grants to nonprofit organizations in our 25-county region in East Tennessee and is currently activated for the COVID-19 national emergency. ETF seeks to provide emergency funds to nonprofit organizations to meet some of the critical needs created by COVID-19 and is currently accepting applications. 

Phase I Approximately 40% of grants may be awarded to assist with critical and immediate needs created by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. These may include but are not limited to food, housing, utilities, and health (physical & mental/emotional) needs.

Phase II Approximately 30% of grants may be awarded to assist with recurring critical needs, as well as lost revenue and continued operations of essential nonprofit services.

Phase III Approximately 30% of grants may be awarded to support long-term needs created by the pandemic, as well as support for nonprofit organizations’ long-term stability for their operations.
