Douglas County CARES Not-for-Profit Assistance Program
Support for Douglas County Not-for-Profit Organizations.
Nonprofits are at the front lines, supporting those directly diagnosed with COVID-19 and those impacted by the economic impacts of this health crisis. The Douglas County CARES Act Fund is available to support nonprofits organizations operating in Douglas County that are experiencing increased need due to the COVID-19 public health emergency.
$20 million in CARES Act funding is available, with $10 million allocated for not-for-profit organizations in Douglas County.
The funding for this program comes from $166 million in federal Coronavirus Relief Funds awarded to Douglas County as part of the federal CARES Act. Douglas County has contracted with the Omaha Community Foundation to assist in developing and administering this grant program on behalf of the county, consistent with federal and state requirements. Applications for the CARES Act grant funding closed on September 23, 2020.
