Greater Sullivan COVID Relief Fund
Funding is available to non-profits who are struggling to meet the needs of their service population due to the current pandemic. These monies, under the oversight of the Greater Sullivan County COVID-19 Community Response Coalition will be used to support organizations with challenges related to COVID-19 (including but not limited to, technology, food access/expansion, and older adult supports). The Funding Steering Committee is still accepting requests for non-profits to access community relief funds. As the current state continues to evolve, the Committee wants to ensure that any non-profit organization in need of assistance due to COVID-19 is able to apply for these funds.
Your help at this time is critical.
In order to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic of 2020, Greater Sullivan Strong needs your financial support!
Greater Sullivan Strong will distribute contributed funds to organizations working to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. These include food, family supports, mental health, services for seniors, housing and other needs that are not being met. Greater Sullivan Strong works through a coalition of nonprofits, municipalities, county agencies and healthcare partners focused on Greater Sullivan and its health and well-being.
Sullivan County United Way is acting as the fiscal agent for Greater Sullivan Strong.
