Covid-19 Community Stabilization Fund Application
Based on real-time feedback provided by nonprofit partners, community leaders, and individuals in need, CFHZ’s board has identified the following targeted strategies for prioritized investment:
1) Financial Stability - Preventing people from slipping into poverty - primary strategy is focused on stabilizing ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) households, in particular by helping keep people in their homes through rent payment assistance and home foreclosure prevention.
2) Continued basic needs supports - primary strategy is providing basic needs support targeted to those who haven’t (or won’t ever) receive the federal stimulus financial supports.
3) Health - Increase mental health and substance abuse services - primary strategy is scaling up existing mental health and substance abuse providers to be able to serve more people and reach different audiences.
4) Education - Mitigating the education opportunity gap - primary strategy is to provide extra resources to support those students who are likely to fall the furthest behind on their educational journeys as our model for learning is being forced to adapt in real-time.
The review committee will be meeting monthly and will focus on awarding funds to one to two strategies per month. Upcoming deadlines are outlined in the timeline section below. This application form is the first step of the process and CFHZ staff will contact you for additional information if your application advances to the next stage of the review process. This decision will be made based on which applications present the best opportunities to advance the stated goals and priorities of the fund. If you have had previous experience with our Competitive Grant Program, this process is intended to be simpler and to move more quickly given the unique and urgent challenges our community is facing at this time.
