Support for Nonprofit Organizations, Cultural and Educational Institutions, and Human Service Providers
The NYC COVID-19 Response & Impact Fund is being administered by the New York Community Trust to support New York City-based social services and arts and cultural organizations that have been affected by the current coronavirus public health crisis. The Fund is initially capitalized at $75 million and will provide grants and interest-free loans to small and mid-size nonprofits to help them respond to emerging needs, cover losses associated with the disruption of their operations, and help them continue their critical work. Among social services groups, priority will be given to direct service providers, such as those supporting essential healthcare and food insecurity. In the arts and cultural sector, the Fund will provide support to small- and mid-size organizations that work from and are attentive to their communities. More information can be found here.
