To mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on Guilford County Nonprofits and their employees, and residents, Guilford County is providing emergency financial support through the Guilford CARES Nonprofit Assistance Grant Program that is targeted at qualified nonprofit agencies that are negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic due to Stay at Home Orders and to meet the needs in the community not addressed by other sources.  The program will provide one-time grants of up to $50,000 to help offset the significant, temporary service impacts of nonprofits during this pandemic. 

The County has initially identified up to $2.5 million in emergency relief funds to support the nonprofit agencies and assist residents in our community who have been hardest hit by the pandemic, specifically local nonprofits with a location in the County.  The source of funding for this grant program is the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act federal stimulus package.

The objective of this program is to offer immediate financial assistance to nonprofit agencies in Guilford County to aid in maintaining their business, workforce, and residents.  The application will be available on Wednesday, June 10, 2020 at 3:00 PM.  Awards will be made on a first come, first served basis. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. In order to expedite issuance of funds applications will only be received using the online tool below.
