Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation (AAACF) - Ypsilanti Area Community Fund (YACF)
Grants to Michigan nonprofit organizations in eligible communities for projects that support Coronavirus (COVID-19) recovery and relief. Applicants are required to attend an information session. Priority areas of funding include youth education, public health, and community support. Eligible programs must have direct impact within Washtenaw County.
1) Provide resources “right now” to limit the damage and harm caused by health and economic hardships and/or 2) Efforts related to COVID-19 which create opportunities for immediate and long-term recovery, systemic transformation, and revitalization throughout Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti Township (48197 and 48198 zip codes) to communities underserved and affected most by COVID-19.
Despite the deep strength and resiliency of all the communities in Washtenaw County, ongoing health disparities are reflected locally, including a disproportionate impact of the Coronavirus on communities of color. YACF is using local data to make well-informed decisions to maximize the impact of its grants. YACF is also listening to community networks and volunteers to identify immediate and direct community-driven solutions, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Priority will be given to applications with the following focuses. Funding examples, but not limited to, are listed below each focus.

Youth Educational Support:
