The grant program has two primary funding buckets. The first is a general nonprofit relief fund of up to $140,000 which will focus on helping Chaffee nonprofits recoup lost revenue or expenses related directly to COVID-19. Applications will require organizations to provide clear and objective documentation which details their COVID-19 related revenue loss. Approved grants will reimburse organizations up to $7,500 or 20 percent of their 2019 operating budget, whichever is less.
The second program is a youth programming and care fund of up to $52,500 which is open to all entity types including nonprofits, businesses, churches, and others who have provided youth care or youth programming due to COVID-19. Applications will require entities to provide receipts for costs associated with providing this programming or care. There is no cap on reimbursement under this bucket. Applications proposing future programming are encouraged and pre-commitments will be issued in these cases.
