Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund

Together, We Can

Building a strong community that takes care of everyone who lives here depends on your generous support.

Supporting Our Community

The Greater New Haven COVID-19 Community Fund, a joint effort between the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and United Way of Greater New Haven, provides flexible support for organizations working to respond to issues resulting from the pandemic. Eligible applicants will be organizations that are working on the frontlines with those individuals most severely and disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis in the 20-town Greater New Haven region. There is a particular interest in supporting organizations led by and/or partnering with people of color and/or those living in poverty.

Grant funds are intended to be used to support the delivery of services over the next three to six months. Organizations may receive between $15,000-$50,000 in funding. As part of the application, organizations should describe how they are adhering to state and CDC guidelines regarding the safe delivery of services. We anticipate this will be a highly competitive process, and grants awarded will depend on available funds.

Note: United Way of Greater New Haven and the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven are using a shared application for this process.
