Community Foundations of the Hudson Valley is announcing the second round of emergency grants made through the Putnam Covid-19 Response Fund. Funding is made possible by the generosity of community people giving back, and grants are shoring up vital services in Putnam County.
After receiving many worthy applications, the selection committee identified groups and projects that are providing front-line support to the community. “This round of grants is supporting important efforts to feed families, provide mental health services, and offer workforce training and placement,” said Nancy Rossi Brownell, Vice President of the organization’s efforts in Putnam. “In partnership with caring and committed nonprofit professionals, these supports will immediately begin to relieve challenges experienced by our neighbors in this pandemic.”
“We especially want to thank the generous individuals who have donated to make this funding available,” Brownell continued. “Without their contributions, we would not be able to have the impact we are today. Working together, we can, and will, get through this trying time.”
Community members can donate online at:
