COVID19 Emergency Relief Fund
With the outbreak of COVID19, the nonprofit sector, as with the business and public sectors, has been hit hard as demand for services and subsequent costs to provide those services has increased. The Emergency Relief Fund, activated when a state of emergency is declared by the state or municipal agency, is designed to make giving to support nonprofits impacted by this event easy for donors and for impacted nonprofits to apply for funding.
Applications for nonprofit assistance are being accepted on a continuous basis for immediate, mid-, and long-term efforts. Currently, the Fund is prioritizing basic human needs (i.e., food, shelter, healthcare, rent and utility assistance) for the most vulnerable populations .
There is not a limit to the amount that an organization can request. While funds are limited and certain needs are being prioritized, it is important that organizations communicate their losses so we can have the best understanding of the needs in our community..
Apply for one of the following types of funding
- Immediate First Response: These are reimbursement grants for services rendered during first response.
- Mid-Term Recovery: These are for gaps in services such as repairing and rehousing people, getting infrastructure back up and running (schools, libraries, etc), and assisting in mental health services, among others.
- Long-Term Rebuilding: These are largely for returning the area to its natural state or for long-term mental health care needs.
