Mayor Scott Announces Additional $2M for Baltimore Nonprofits to Address Negative Impacts of COVID-19

Today, Mayor Brandon M. Scott and the Baltimore Civic Fund announced $2M in competitive grant funding to 69 Baltimore nonprofit organizations as part of the 2021 Baltimore Nonprofit Relief Fund.

As part of a series of efforts to support nonprofits in their COVID-19 recovery, Baltimore City continues to address the financial needs of those negatively affected by the pandemic in order for valuable community services and outreach to continue.

“As our nonprofit organizations continue to keep Baltimoreans afloat through this pandemic, I am proud that we are able to reciprocate the support,” said Mayor Brandon M. Scott. “This round of funding will supplement our economic recovery efforts and help these important organizations plan ahead and continue their services to support our residents as we continue to navigate the effects of COVID-19.”

According to a County press release:

Awards will help to address the negative financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, both reimbursing organizations for unexpected funds spent to respond to the pandemic, as well as addressing future needs related to COVID-19. The 2021 Baltimore Nonprofit Relief Fund is the second round of COVID-19 response funding invested in Baltimore nonprofit organizations in the past year. The first round of the Nonprofit Relief Fund, released in December 2020, served 124 organizations to help defray unexpected costs.
