Nonprofit organizations have long played a critical role in maintaining the social safety net, but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. To that end, the Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity (CEO) created the Neighborhood Equitable Recovery Fund, in partnership with Bread & Roses Community Fund, to support grassroots nonprofit organizations that serve communities of color and those with low incomes, which have been hardest hit by the pandemic. Grants of $15,000 will be made to 25 organizations that are selected.


NERF is a community-driven grantmaking process in which residents from the target zip codes are a central part of:

  • evaluating applicants,

  • determining funding priorities,

  • and making funding decisions.


Community-based organizations that are experiencing financial hardship, are at risk of closing, or have reduced services due to the pandemic are encouraged to apply.
