What is a COVID-19 Recovery Grant?

COVID-19 Recovery Grants will provide relief to our local nonprofits who have faced a reduction in operating revenue and general support, established new programs to help with COVID-19 related needs, or nonprofits who have canceled fundraising events which had a significant impact on their ability to carry out their mission.   

How Can I apply for a COVID-19 Recovery Grant? 

A simple online application will be reviewed by a team from both organizations and you'll get a single response.
