An emergency lifeline for nonprofits in Baltimore
From youth development to providing a helping hand to neighbors experiencing homelessness, nonprofit organizations play a critical role in helping Baltimore residents build a good life. Nonprofits in Baltimore responded quickly to the coronavirus pandemic to continue crucial services, and many have seen unplanned costs as a result of the public health crisis. Mayor Young created the Baltimore Nonprofit Relief Fund to provide a critical lifeline to Baltimore nonprofit organizations faced with unexpected costs due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This one-time, $5 million fund supports nonprofit organizations by reimbursing them for unplanned costs incurred since the start of the pandemic in March 2020. Through the Nonprofit Relief Fund, Baltimore City is one of a few places in the country prioritizing financial support for nonprofit organizations with federal CARES Act funding.
The application for the Baltimore Nonprofit Relief Fund is now open through 11:59 p.m. on November 20, 2020.
