NYC COVID-19 Human Services

The New York City COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund requests proposals from New York City human services nonprofits with operating budgets of less than $20 million, excluding government payments. 

Grants will cover a twelve-week period and are expected to be between $10,000 and $250,000; award amounts will take into consideration the organization’s total operating budget.

If you are seeking a grant for expenses that you expect will eventually be covered by a government contract, please apply instead to our no-interest loan program through the Nonprofit Finance Fund. Grants will not cover expenses that will be reimbursed by government contracts or awards.

Note: These parameters may change in response to the situation and organizational needs. All such changes will be communicated to applicants.

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