Thank you for your interest in APEN’s COVID-19 Emergency Community Stabilization Fund. We apologize, but due to the volume of interest we are unable to accept any more requests at this moment.

You may try applying to the following funds that may still be open:

Communities for a Better Environment Community Fund: This Community Fund is open to those living in the communities that we organize, including previous and existing CBE members. We encourage Black, African American, Indigenous, people of color, undocumented folks, low-income households, elders, youth, those that are differently abled, women, trans or gender non-conforming folks, formerly incarcerated, single income households, houseless people, and those who are health compromised to apply for assistance through the program.

Oakland At Risk Mutual Aid: We are preparing for a potential community outbreak of Covid-19 in Oakland by identifying healthy adults under 60 whose risk factors are low and are willing to be paired with someone with high risk factors. Once a match is made, you and your match can coordinate delivery of essential supplies such as food and prescriptions and you can create a check in schedule by phone or other electronic method.

Contra Costa Mutual Aid Network: This is a local group aiming to coordinate support in our local streets during the Covid-19 outbreak. This is a volunteer effort in the community to help support the more vulnerable members of our community in Contra Costa.

If you have any other questions/concerns, please feel free to contact covidinfo@apen4ej.org. Thank you for your patience.

We wish you good health and safety!
