The current COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the lives of many people within Summit County, from economic job losses, food insecurity, loss of benefits, loss of housing, struggle to find dependent care for young children, among other hardships. A portion of Summit County’s Nonprofit Grant Program funds have been allocated to cover expenditures incurred by residents and employees of Summit County, as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Individuals disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 may include but are not limited to: immunocompromised individuals, those without health insurance, seniors, those at risk for eviction, workers with no access to sick days, people with limited English language proficiency, undocumented immigrants, hospitality and service sector workers, healthcare workers, gig economy workers, school children, and communities of colour, among others.

Given the uncertainty of the pandemic’s trend and the possibility of a second, government-mandated quarantine – i.e. return to a shelter-in-place or continued reduction in tourism – this grant serves two purposes:

To secure the basic human needs of those who reside and work in Summit County,
To support resilience planning for uncertain economic times in 2021.

As this is a first time and one-time grant program, the Foundation is unable to predict the average grant size.
