APPLICATION NOW OPEN: Greater Portland COVID-19 Community Relief Fund
March 24, 2020
On March 20, 2020, United Way of Greater Portland launched the Greater Portland COVID-19 Community Relief Fund to support our most vulnerable neighbors. This includes those currently or those at risk of becoming homeless and those who could suffer devastating financial and health impacts due to the Coronavirus.
Funds will be awarded to non-profit organizations and municipalities serving vulnerable populations most affected by emerging health, economic, and social impacts including:
- Individuals and families currently homeless or in imminent danger of becoming homeless due to housing insecurity, which includes difficulty paying for housing/rent costs, utilities, and other costs deemed necessary for housing; and
- Low-income individuals and families struggling to make ends meet due to a loss in household income attributed to interruptions to work.
Please apply by 11:59 p.m. on April 1 to be considered for grant awards in this first round. We expect to announce the first round of grants in mid-April. Applications after that date will be considered for the next round of funding, at a date to be determined. Please contact Sarah Warren at email@example.com or Dan Coyne at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Thank you for the work you are doing every day to help support our neighbors and residents.
