Agency / Department: Pittsburgh Foundation
Resource: Emergency Action Fund
Details: The Emergency Action Fund will address the immediate and long-term impacts of COVID-19 by providing funding in four areas:
Operating support for small and mid-sized nonprofit organizations (annual budgets under $5 million) serving communities with predominantly low-income households. Funding will be awarded to assure that these organizations can continue to meet the basic needs of the people in their communities, particularly relating to food and housing insecurity, and to cover losses associated with the disruption of their operations.
Organizations that manage emergency funds that provide direct financial assistance to individuals impacted by COVID-19.
Support for Federally Qualified Health Centers and other community health facilities.
Small arts organizations (and individual artists) that have had to cancel productions scheduled between March 1 and June 30, 2020.
