The United Way of Westchester and Putnam announced that in its continued response to the hardships created by COVID-19, it is accepting grant proposals from nonprofits in Westchester and Putnam counties. The organization will be awarding grants up to $5,000 to nonprofits directly helping the underprivileged or ALICE populations, those who are employed but are living paycheck-to-paycheck, who are displaced or actively impacted COVID-19.
Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way of Westchester and Putnam has administered over $1.7 million in grants to local nonprofits.
The United Way of Westchester and Putnam Community Disaster Recovery Fund, a collection of different funds administered by United Way of Westchester and Putnam, provides direct disaster recovery assistance to local nonprofits affected by colossal natural and human-made disasters.
The proposal submission deadline is 4 p.m. on Monday, May 24th. United Way of Westchester and Putnam will disperse the grants in June 2021.
