FFHFYF will consider emergency grant requests up to $2,000 from programs and organizations in the Farmington and Farmington Hills community who are meeting additional, critical community needs as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.
As our physical office is currently closed, emergency grant requests must be submitted electronically on the FFHFYF Emergency Grant Application Form.
WHO CAN APPLY FOR AN EMERGENCY GRANT?
Each emergency grant request will be reviewed on its own merits taking into consideration the criteria below. It should be emphasized that these criteria are guidelines only, and emergency grant requests may be reviewed and accepted that do not fall within these parameters.
- Programs and organizations requesting emergency grant awards should benefit the Farmington & Farmington Hills community during the COVID-19 outbreak.
- Emergency grant awards will only be made to groups, not individuals.
- Emergency grants will only be given to programs and organization that are meeting critical needs in the community that have increased as a direct result of the COVID-19 crisis.
- Programs requesting emergency grant funding should be open to, or of benefit to all, and should encourage diversity & inclusiveness. Emergency grants will not generally be awarded to religious organizations except for programs or services provided on a secular basis, which are available to persons without regard to religious preference.
- Applicants must be able to demonstrate that their current budget is unable to support the increased demand placed on their organization or program by the COVID-19 crisis, and also show a willingness and ability to pursue additional funding from other sources.
- Priority for emergency grants will be given to organizations and programs that have previously been awarded regular grants by FFHFYF, providing that they have met the terms and conditions of the regular grant agreement including appropriate and timely reporting.
