United Way of Kenosha County Covid-19 Grant

Our grant application is now closed. Stay tuned for more information on our 2nd round of funding!


To apply for a grant, you must be a 501(c)(3) health and human service organization in the Kenosha County community with a successful track record of serving at-risk populations who are experiencing the negative health and economic effects of Covid-19.  Funds will be used for all activities providing direct relief to vulnerable community members disproportionately impacted by Covid-19.  

Please note that organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, citizenship status, age, disability, sexual orientation or veteran status are not eligible to apply.  Individuals are not eligible to apply.  We understand many individuals and families have been affected by COVID-19 already and more will continue to be affected.  This Response fund is working to move resources to community-based organizations that are directly supporting residents and families who are most affected by emerging health, economic, and social impacts.  If you are an individual or family with immediate concerns, please call 211 for assistance connecting to resources.   

Grants will address the most immediate needs first, keeping in mind that some needs likely emerge over time.
