Eastern Kentucky Emergency Relief Fund - Request Form / Formulario solicitud para fondo de apoyo
It is with heavy hearts that we must close the request form. We have given out all of the money raised and can no longer accept new requests.
In the last 5 months, we gave direct financial support to over 100 families in eastern Kentucky! We are so proud of what we accomplished together. EKY Mutual Aid is adapting for the long haul, and we are excited to share what's next for us soon. Please stay connected by following us on Facebook and Instagram. To get in touch with us, send us an email at: ekymutualaid[at]gmail.com
In addition, we wanted to share the following resources, in case they could be of use:
1. EKY Mutual Aid Facebook Group - space for eastern Kentuckians to gather and share and request resources. We just launched an Amazon Wish List to buy school supplies for kids. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2557126217948530/
2. Team Kentucky Fund: Community Action of Kentucky, Inc. will provide financial vouchers of up to $1,000 for eligible persons. https://teamkyfund.ky.gov/
3. Are you under the age of 30? If so, you could be eligible for funding from the STAY Project/Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition mutual aid fund. You can fill out an application here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfGOHTxGOBMZPw0jUJKqieQU3UILABGP6WAvSqlasmg6IML1w/viewform
4. The Kentucky Equal Justice Center has a list of resources available for people in Kentucky here: https://www.kyequaljustice.org/post/get-the-help-you-need
, includes information on food, health coverage, child care, unemployment insurance and housing.
Times are hard and made harder by the inequitable society we live in. But we know when communities help each other, we are all better off.
With love and solidarity,
EKY Mutual Aid Team
