On May 27, 2020, Governor Pete Ricketts announced the Community CARES grant program to help Nebraska's charitable organizations and care providers respond to and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. The grants are being funded by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. They are designed to aid Nebraska charitable organizations and licensed providers by providing working capital; provide community programming for COVID-19 response and recovery; and provide key supplies for child care and religious centers.
DHHS is committed to prioritizing available funds for underserved communities, including areas of high poverty, communities of color, and populations disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
Please read the program descriptions below for detailed information on three Community CARES grants and how to apply. An organization may apply for multiple grants if they meet eligibility criteria.
