COVID-19 Response Fund Application

The United Way of Eastern Maine (UWEM) has established the COVID-19 Response Fund for Eastern Maine to meet the short term, immediate needs, of individuals and families that will be impacted by COVID-19 as well as the long term impacts that have yet to be seen.

UWEM recognizes the potential for economic impact, unpaid absence, illness, or job loss related directly or indirectly to the virus, increased child care needs due to school and child care closures, and the potential risk of not being able to pay utility and food bills due to financial strains.

Organizations that serve populations in need every day will find themselves under-resourced to serve a growing demand for those services. Keeping a strong network of engaged providers strong will be critical to the health of our community services. This fund may also support the capacity building and training support needed of community partners as the situation unfolds.

Based upon the charitable structure of the COVID-19 Response Fund, our grants are limited to 501c3 nonprofit organizations, groups fiscally sponsored by a 501c3 nonprofit organization, or other charitable organizations able to receive a tax-deductible contribution, such as schools, faith-based organizations, and other public entities in UWEM's 5 county service area. We are not able to fund individuals or businesses directly, labor unions, or other 501c4, 501c5, and 501c6 organizations who are not serving Hancock, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Washington and Waldo Counties. The fund is not intended to cover organizational salaries, overhead or general operating expenses.
