This temporary emergency program is to assist Ridgefield-based not-for-profit entities to provide food, clothing, and personal care items to those in need during the COVID 19 Pandemic.
The Ridgefield City Council has committed a portion of CARES Act funding to the COVID-19 Ridgefield Non-Profit Food Bank Grant Fund, an emergency fund that provides grants to qualifying organizations that assist community members in need with food, clothing and other supplies.
The City Council has allocated $12,000 of CARES Act funding for grants under this Program. The grant awards will be up to $12,000 per organization in compliance with the organization and fund use criteria. Grants will be provided on a first come first served basis for eligible expenses incurred between March 1 and November 30, 2020. Applications can be submitted between November 23, 2020 and November 25, 2020. The program may be terminated on November 30th, or such date as allocated funding has been used, whichever is earlier. Program may be extended in the event additional funding is allocated or the CARES Act grant funding deadlines are extended.
