The COVID pandemic and resulting economic downturn have taken an outsized toll on low income individuals and families and communities of color across New York City.
In response, FPWA member agencies have seen a drastic increase in need among their clients and parishioners. In an effort to support our member agencies in meeting these increased needs, FPWA is proud to release its Emergency Community Support Program.
FPWA's Emergency Community Support Program consists of two opportunities for FPWA member agencies:
Funded by the NYC COVID-19 Response and Impact Fund in The New York Community Trust and DeKay Trust, FPWA is providing $250,000 in emergency support to clients and parishioners of our member agencies. The Emergency Grant Program has been created using several funding sources which may require restricted used of funds based on population served.
Provided by generous donation, FPWA is providing $20,000 in restaurant gift cards to support the purchase of food for FPWA member agency staff members, clients, and parishioners. Examples of uses include:
