For the duration of this global health pandemic, the Community Impact Fund will serve as a resource for working families affected by this crisis. UWSLO leaders recognize the potential for economic impact, particularly affecting hospitality and service industry workers, is high.
The organizations that serve populations in need every day will find themselves under-resourced and facing growing demand. United Way and the partners are working to identify those critical needs and resource gaps to best determine an appropriate response. UWSLO is now prepared to rapidly deploy flexible resources to local nonprofit organizations in the region working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the economic consequences of this health crisis.
The rapid-relief grants will increase resiliency in disproportionately affected communities by addressing the economic impact of reduced and lost work due to the broader COVID-19 outbreak, the immediate needs of economically vulnerable populations caused by COVID-19 related closures, the increased demand for medical information and support, and fear and confusion about the outbreak among the most vulnerable residents. They anticipate that the primary areas of need will include:
Other Assistance: Assistance is available for unmet needs not covered under items, as determined by the Community Impact Committee.
The United Way of San Luis Obispo County’s Community Impact Committee reserves the right to support other areas of need that develop as a result of the crisis.
Hosted by United Way of San Luis Obispo County, the Community Impact Fund will provide mini grants up to $2,000 to local nonprofit organizations serving the county and working with communities who are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19 and the economic consequences of this outbreak.
Grants will fund 501(c)3 organizations that have deep roots in the community and strong experience working with under resourced residents.
The Community Impact Fund is designed to complement the work of public health officials and expand local capacity.
