Flexibility for our grantees: For some of our grantees, your ability to meet grant-related reporting requirements or objectives may be impacted. If you’re concerned about this, please let us know so that we can work to adjust expectations as we face new challenges and work ahead. Please contact Megan Bell, Director of Grants and Programs, with any questions or concerns.

To each of our grantees and community partners impacted by COVID-19, our thoughts are with you. Now is the time to lean on one another for support and resources while we navigate these difficult circumstances together.
