COVID-19 Emergency Fund Documents

As we all find ourselves in an unfamiliar time United Way has and will continue to help our community in need!

United Way of DeKalb County has set aside funding to rapidly assist community-based organizations who are at the frontlines of DeKalb County’s current COVID-19 pandemic. Funds will be awarded to organizations and programs that have strong experience working to provide support for immediate basic needs as well as mental and economic stability. Funding is designed to complement the work of local public health, nonprofit, and government entities, and to expand local capacity to support individuals and families experiencing hardship as a result of the outbreak and related closures and disruptions.

  • Eligible organizations must meet the following requirements:

  • 501c3 nonprofit

  • Serve DeKalb County residents

  • If required, provide either their latest financial audit or most recent board approved financial statement (if not already a United Way funded agency)

  • Able to expend/distribute funds to immediately respond to the individuals and families impacted by COVID-19

  • Able to document and report on how funds are used to meet the identified need(s) within 30-45 days of receiving funds

Community organizations requesting funds must complete the application found below. All non-United Way funded agencies may be required to provide either their latest financial audit or most recent board approved financial statement.
