Southland communities receive grants to combat health and financial disparities magnified by COVID-1

In response to COVID-19’s continuous impact on Chicago residents and the local economy, the Chicago Community COVID-19 Respond Fund announced an additional $9.5 million in grants. Funds will support 194 nonprofit organizations in Chicago and the surrounding collar counties, providing emergency resources to residents hardest hit by the health and financial crisis.

For the third round of grants, 739 nonprofit organizations submitted applications seeking financial support. This overwhelming response illustrates the growing need for support. While the $9.5 million from this round of the Response Fund will help meet many urgent needs, it is clear that it will take the resources raised and much more to address the continuously emerging needs across our region.

SSMMA and 14 other nonprofit organizations received grants for the communities of Alsip, Chicago Heights, Flossmoor, Homewood, Harvey, Park Forest, Riverdale and Tinley Park. See the full list of grant recommendations.
