Round 2 of the Neighborhood Equitable Recovery Fund – Oct 1

Posted by Bread & Roses Community Fund on September 14, 2021

Is your nonprofit organization serving vulnerable Philadelphians during the COVID-19 pandemic? We may be able to assist you!

Nonprofit organizations have long played a critical role in maintaining the social safety net, but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, the Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO) created the Neighborhood Equitable Recovery Fund, in partnership with 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 pandemic. Grants of $15,000 will be made to 25 organizations that are selected.

NERF 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.

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 Wednesday, September 22 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. Please register to receive the login information.

The deadline to submit applications is Friday, October 1 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

Learn more and apply.
