COVID-19 Resources for Nonprofits
Gwinnett County values the services provided throughout our community by our nonprofit and faith-based partners. We recognize that each agency faces unique challenges during the COVID-19 pandemic, and we offer current resources to assist you in maintaining services and responding to immediate needs.
We are actively evaluating Gwinnett’s allocations, eligible uses of funds, and regulatory requirements for CARES Act funding so that the County can subgrant eligible funds to our nonprofit partners. Other community resources and funding opportunities are available at this time. Please read through the COVID-19 Grant Funding Opportunities for Nonprofits booklet to learn about opportunities that may be available for your organization.
COVID-19 Grant Funding Cycle
Gwinnett County is making available funds awarded through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to nonprofit agencies providing valuable services in Gwinnett to support their response to local needs related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the immediate need of these funds to assist during this pandemic, the Statement of Need will allow your agency to apply for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV), Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV), and Coronavirus Relief Funds with one form.
All interested agencies should prepare the Statement of Need provided in the link below to request funding through the following grant programs:
- Community Development Block Grant (CDBG-CV)
CARES Act appropriations through U.S. Department of Housing and Development authorized funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus.
- Emergency Solutions Grant (ESG-CV)
CARES Act appropriations through the U.S. Department of Housing and Development authorized funding to prevent, prepare for, and respond to the coronavirus among individuals and families who are homeless or receiving homeless assistance and homelessness prevention activities.
- Coronavirus Relief Fund
CARES Act appropriations through the U.S. Department of Treasury authorized Coronavirus Relief funds to allow Gwinnett County to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
The Statement of Need must be submitted by Thursday, June 4, 2020 for consideration. As we continue to practice social distancing measures as recommended by Federal and State public health officials, the Statement of Need must be submitted ELECTRONICALLY through Box.Com. You will need to create a FREE Box.Com account to submit your documentation.
