STAY Project & KSEC Mutual Aid Request Form
In the coming weeks we expect young people will need support paying bills, medical care, childcare, hot-spots for internet access, etc… The STAY Project and the Kentucky Student Environmental Coalition are working on getting a mutual aid fund for young people in our networks who are being displaced and put out of work by COVID-19. This fund will prioritize Black, Indigenous, PoC. LGBTQIA, disabled, chronically-ill, and immunocompromised youth.

For the time being we will be able provide up to $200 in aid to young people under the age of 30 in the network of the STAY Project and KSEC.

You don't have to be a member to apply, but you do have to live in their service areas. For KSEC, that is the entire state of Kentucky. For STAY, that is the Appalachian counties of Kentucky, Alabama, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia.

Once you have submitted your form, you will receive an email requesting that you send a W-9 and your direct deposit information to We will be sending payments to be processed on Mondays and Wednesdays, and Fridays at 3pm, payment information received after that time will be sent in the next batch.

The STAY Project and KSEC are organizations run for youth and by youth, and because of that, we know firsthand how deep the need is in our community. We are going to try to meet that need to the best of our ability and we want to be as transparent as possible about the process. We welcome questions and only ask for grace and patience as we navigate this moment with y'all. We are in this together <3
