Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $10,000 to New York nonprofit organizations to address the needs of residents impacted by COVID-19. Priority will be given to organizations that serve vulnerable and underserved populations and organizations that work towards racial justice and equity. Funding is intended to benefit residents of Brooklyn.

Brooklyn Community Foundation recognizes that as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to intensify locally, it will have disproportionate health, economic, and social impacts on communities of color at the margins of power and access. The Foundation believes the most vulnerable communities have been systematically denied the material resources to buffer from the emerging threats this pandemic presents.  

The Brooklyn COVID-19 Response Fund will operate in alignment with the Foundation’s racial justice lens, which prioritizes support for nonprofits that work towards racial equity, are led by members of affected communities, and center the voices of those directly impacted by structural racism in decision-making.

The Fund is accepting applications on a rolling basis for immediate response grants in the following priority areas:

  • Anti-stigma efforts and support to address xenophobic, anti-Asian harassment, and discrimination
  • Prevention measures (education, sanitary supplies) and support for vulnerable populations of people, i.e. older adults, people with compromised immune systems, and people who are unhoused 
  • Practical needs, in case of a disruption in services to vulnerable populations, such as meal delivery and daily living support for homebound older adults
  • Food access and other practical supports for people who may have impacted wages or be unable to stock up on food, specifically those who may fall in the gaps of any government-led structural responses
  • Support for workers, especially low-wage workers, to address lack of access to healthcare and paid sick leave, lack of proper safety equipment, economic impact of lost wages due to quarantines, cancelled activities, reduced hours/layoffs
  • Other emerging, immediate needs
