All In WA is excited to announce that it has begun accepting applications for the All In WA Covid Relief Fund, thanks to generous donations made in large part through the All In WA Concert for Covid 19 Relief with Presenting Sponsor Amazon and Community Sponsor Microsoft.
Grants made through the All In WA Covid Relief Fund will go to provide immediate supports to disproportionately impacted people in the hardest-hit communities in Washington.
ALL IN WASHINGTON COVID RELIEF FUND
EMERGENCY FLEXIBLE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE
The All In WA COVID Relief Fund grants focus on Emergency Flexible Financial Assistance. Grants were awarded to community-based organizations that are providing immediate financial support for disproportionately impacted individuals and families.
This support is critical for residents and families to meet their basic needs and regain stability in their lives. Funds are intended to be flexible, allowing people to decide how best to prioritize their needs for housing, health care, food, childcare, transportation, and other necessities.
The All In WA COVID Relief Fund awarded 109 grants to community-based organizations and Tribes, totaling $7,800,000. Click here for a list of grantees.
Child Care Initiative
The Child Care Initiative provides vital resources to expand access to affordable child care for working parents, especially essential workers with the greatest need, while also helping to sustain child care providers across Washington. To date, funding has been provided through two grant cycles.
Applications closed in December for the first grant cycle focused on supporting family child care businesses, especially BIPOC-owned child care businesses. Click here to view the grant announcement with grantee list.
Applications just closed for the second grant cycle focused on licensed non-profit child care centers. These grants will be announced here in mid February.
Youth Behavioral Health Grants Program
The Youth Behavioral Health grants program will provide flexible funding to trusted community-based organizations, including coalitions and tribal entities, to expand or enhance their services and supports for youth ages 10-24 and/or their caregivers so they develop greater resilience, well-being, and healthy functioning in the near-term and long-term.
The application deadline closed in December. Grantees will be announced here at the end of January.
