FOR YOUR HEALTH

Our COVID-19 Response to Our Nonprofit Partners


On March 18, 2020 the District Board of Directors voted to deploy up to $3 million dollars in grants to its current nonprofit Caring Community and Healthy Schools Initiative (HSI) partners that provide safety net services to our most vulnerable District residents. To date, we have already awarded the entire $500,000 set aside for the first round of emergency grants among 19 partners and $100,000 in emergency loans. Please stayed tuned in for future funding opportunties. Our intention is to deploy funds quickly and efficiently to enhance agency response efforts during this rapidly evolving situation and to assure alignment with what’s needed while remaining agile and adaptable. Please direct any questions to Jenny Bratton at jbratton@seq.org
