Carver County Community Development Agency (CDA) Non-Profit Emergency Assistance Fund

The Non-Profit Emergency Assistance Fund will provide up to $10,000 for qualified 501(c)(3) organizations who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.  The goal of the program is to assist and stabilize non-profits who provide important services to our community. Non-profits with less than 40 employees (excluding volunteers), $2M in annual revenue, and have seen at least a 10 percent loss of revenue since March 15, 2020 are eligible to apply for up to $10,000 in funding.  Funds will be available to assist with expenses such as payroll, rent, utilities and more as outlined in the program guidelines (including eligibility requirements).

Applications will be accepted online only from September 8--21.  They will be reviewed and ranked, and award recipients will be notified prior to the end of September.

Please consider supporting our Chamber--with a financial gift--during this challenging time (COVID-19) . . .

We understand the impact, and related challenges, this COVID-19 environment has had on our local business communities. This difficult period has been a challenge for many, and we--as a nonprofit 501(c)(6)--have been affected as well, in regard to income, staffing, and budgetary constraints. A financial gift to our Chamber--a nonprofit that is reliant on membership & events--helps us "weather this storm" so we can continue serving our businesses and communities the remainder of this year/2020 & into 2021 and beyond.
