COVID-19 Funding

Together with the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley and The Youngstown Foundation, we are pleased to announce the 2021 launch of the Mahoning Valley COVID-19 Response and Stabilization Application.

Using the common form, Mahoning Valley nonprofit organizations can submit proposals for programmatic, general operating or capital grants to any one of the foundations or all three at the same time.

COVID-19 funding from the foundations will primarily focus on:

  • The Community Foundation – crisis relief and immediate needs.
  • The Youngstown Foundation – crisis relief and stabilization.
  • The Wean Foundation – stabilization and rebuilding of local communities.

Since the inception of the joint COVID-19 grant application in March 2020, more than 100 grants totaling over $1.6 million were awarded to Valley nonprofit organizations for crisis and stabilization efforts.
