The United Way of Westchester and Putnam announced that in response to the hardships created by the Coronavirus it is releasing funds totaling up to $15,000 through grants to nonprofits in Putnam. The organization will be awarding grants up to $5,000 to nonprofits directly providing in-home services, such as telehealth or the delivery of meals or groceries, for senior citizen, or individuals who are chronically ill, or immune-compromised during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency in Putnam County.
“There are so many needs in Putnam County during this public health emergency, but we wanted to get immediate funds out to the nonprofits that are serving our most vulnerable populations,” said United Way of Westchester and Putnam CEO Tom Gabriel. “This grant initiative is the first of several rounds of funding that we anticipate being able to distribute in support of the Putnam County communities affected by the Coronavirus.”
The application deadline is Wednesday, April 22nd. United Way of Westchester and Putnam will disperse the grants in May 2020.
