Community Foundation awards additional $42K in crisis grants to non-profits; total now $260K
“Without any income, families are having to prioritize what little resources they may have to get through the COVID-19 crisis, leaving their rent and utilities unpaid. These families were already struggling before this crisis, but now these demands are even more prevalent,” said Brittany Chaffee, Downtown Hope’s Love Annapolis advocate volunteer. “As a team, we are striving to serve these families by making sure their day-to-day needs are met.”
Downtown Hope was one of 64 different nonprofits throughout the county to receive a grant from the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County’s (CFAAC) Community Crisis Response Fund. To date, 123 grants totaling $260,231 were awarded. Most recently, CFAAC funded $42K in its fifth cycle to 20 local nonprofits that serve the county’s most vulnerable and at-risk populations including seniors, children, low-income or food-insecure families, and the recently unemployed.
