Resources for Non-profit Organizations during the COVID-19 Crisis

Non-profit organizations have had to respond quickly on multiple fronts to address the coronavirus health emergency. Many have adapted programs and services to meet immediate needs of the populations they serve, while simultaneously protecting their employees and communicating with funders and supporters. With this web-page, we are attempting to keep you informed about resources that are available to help your organization during these challenging times. Please be sure to visit the tabs below for additional local grant opportunities and resources.
