It is anticipated that grants will range from $5,000 to $7,500.
Applications will be evaluated based on the organization’s mission, programs, and sustainability; the organization’s ability to deliver the services for which it is requesting funding; and the needs of the communities served (with particular emphasis on the communities disproportionately impacted by the pandemic).
Grants have generally been awarded in June of each year – however, depending on how the crisis evolves, funds may be disbursed at an earlier date. It is recommended that grantees track data and/or information about the success and/or limitations of their work.
