Covid 19 Recovery Funding
Information gathered through the Impact and Evaluation committee, the Community Voices Series, and current partner reporting shows that there may be several gaps in community’s ability to fully recover from the affects of Covid 19. The gaps include but are not limited to:
Quality affordable child care
Technology gaps like broadband access, digital literacy, and affordable digital devices
Adequate and affordable housing
Support for families and children re-entering society after Covid 19 isolation:
Policy advocacy in the areas of child care, affordable housing, and living wage.
Partner, former partner, and non partner nonprofit agencies investing in the areas above or aligning with MUW’s focus on Children, Education, and Financial Stability in the Monadnock Region that have gap funding needs are eligible. Applicants must be recognized as tax-exempt human service organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Organizations that do not have this status may apply for grants if another 501(c)(3) acts as a reporting and fiscal sponsor. Read the full list of Eligibility Criteria for MUW Funding for more information.
The Request for Funding cycle opens on June 22, 2021. Applications will be accepted from Monadnock area nonprofits that align with the eligibility criteria as stated above until midnight on July 19, 2021.
