Applications are now being accepted for the Green Mountain United Way COVID-19 Emergency Relief and Response Fund.
Green Mountain United Way’s COVID-19 Emergency Relief & Response Fund was created to support the immediate and critical needs caused by COVID-19 and emergency response within the Green Mountain United Way service area of Caledonia, Essex, Orange, Orleans, and Washington counties. Understanding that every dollar is needed by our community to address the increased critical needs as quickly as possible, we have created a streamlined application process including this form and to be submitted along with a brief letter on agency letterhead describing the need you are requesting funding for. 100% of this fund will be given as small-dollar grants ranging from $250-$2,000 to essential non-profit agencies who are working to address the following needs, which are aligned with five goals identified by our Accountable Communities for Health regional teams. These goals include work to ensure that individuals are: Well-Nourished; Well-Housed; Physically and Mentally Healthy; Financially Stable; Have the Ability to Meet Basic Needs.
Preference for funding will be given to non-profits partners who are members of the Accountable Community for Health leadership teams in the Northeast Kingdom (NEK Prosper) and Washington/Northern Orange County (THRIVE) but access to this fund is not limited ACH partners. Any request for funds should be done by 501c3 nonprofit organizations and should demonstrate alignment with the shared goals listed above as they relate to needs created or exacerbated by COVID-19.
We are offering the application in two formats, Word:
And Fillable PDF:
Please include a 1-page letter describing the need for funds on agency letterhead and the application form. Please return both documents to Green Mountain United Way’s Executive Director Tawnya Kristen via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail at 73 Main Street #33, Montpelier, VT 05602.
