Update 10/6 Currently Closed may re-open.
We have extended our COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Individuals! We will be accepting applications until AUGUST 31, 2020.
The Jews of Color Initiative COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund for Individuals is meant to assist People of Color in the Jewish community who are most in need as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. We recognize that Jews of Color, like all People of Color in the United States, experience the headwinds of systemic racism, and systemic racism is a variable in COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on People of Color.
The Jews of Color Initiative supports Jews of Color in professional, organizational, and community spheres. Responding to the impact of COVID-19 on People of Color in the Jewish community is a natural extension of the work we do.
All funding will be in the range of $250-$2500, and must be used for a) rent or mortgage payment, b) transportation to work or medical, c) utilities, d) groceries, e) medical bills, or f) burial expenses.
