Mothers of Color COVID-19 Grant
$3,935 by 12 people
On May 25, I started a weekly, one time grant per recipient of $250 for mothers of color who have been impacted by the pandemic.
In less than 5 days we had over 300 applicants, each with a compelling story. This fund is aimed to help support these weekly grants, so that we can support as many mothers as possible – in addition to the at least $250 I'll be personally disbursing per week. We are currently prioritizing mothers impacted by domestic violence, homelessness or other extenuating family circumstances that have been exacerbated by the pandemic.
100% of these funds will go directly to the vetted mother of color. Funds will be directly disbursed to the selected applicants through my personal PayPal, to protect their privacy.
Amina Ibrahim is kindly assisting me with vetting applications.
If you are a mother of color impacted by COVID-19 you can apply for the grant here. The application is also available in Spanish. Karina San Juan and Silvia Jaramillo are managing the applications in Spanish.
Please take care and stay safe.
