Neighborhood Equitable Recovery Fund – May 20

Posted by Bread and Roses Community Fund on May 11, 2021

Is your community-based organization struggling to serve vulnerable populations due to the COVID-19 pandemic? We may be able to assist you!

The Neighborhood Equitable Recovery Fund is a newly-launched partnership between the Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity and Bread & Roses Community Fund to support grassroots nonprofit organizations that serve communities of color and those with low incomes, which have been hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Grants of $15,000 will be made to 25 organizations that are selected.

The program is a community-driven grantmaking process in which residents from the target zip codes are a central part of:

  • evaluating applicants,
  • determining funding priorities,
  • and making funding decisions.

The community-driven grantmaking process advances equity by returning control to the community so that people affected by the issues work toward their own solutions.

Community-based organizations that are experiencing financial hardship, are at risk of closing, or have reduced services due to the pandemic are encouraged to apply.

There will be a virtual information session on Thursday, May 20, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Please register to receive the login information.

Learn more and apply.

The deadline to submit applications is Monday, June 7 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
