Palm Beach County CARES for Nonprofits Grant
The Palm Beach County Board of County Commissioners has allocated up to $4 million in emergency relief to nonprofit organizations who have been impacted by the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and has contracted with United Way of Palm Beach County to administer distribution of the funds. Funds are available as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act federal stimulus package. Qualifying nonprofit organizations may be eligible to receive a one-time grant up to $25,000 to help them recover from the negative financial consequences resulting from the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
The grant-funding program will prioritize health and human services or veterans’ services organizations in Palm Beach County with a focus on at least one of the following areas:
- Unemployed individuals needing job skills training, assistance with job search and employment applications
- Low-income individuals, youth and/or families
- Individuals with a disability
- Individuals with a mental/behavioral health issue
- Providing critical services in an underserved area
Other 501 (c)(3) agencies may be considered for funding if funding is available.
Organizations that do not meet the priority criteria above will be considered for funding only after all of those that do meet the priority criteria are reviewed and grant award decisions have been made. Applications will be reviewed, and grants awarded, on a rolling basis until funding is exhausted or the grant period closes.
The application deadline is 11:59 pm on November 30, 2020.
