COVID-19 Resources for Nonprofits

Personal Protection Equipment Needs - Organizations can request PPE and cleaning supplies through Department of Public Health. Healthcare organizations and those serving those medically compromised are likely to be able to get supplies through DPH. They also may be able to be reimbursed through FEMA. We recommend the following:

  1. Request PPE and cleaning supplies from Public Health through their request portal. This is linked from their website  under the "Community Call to Action" section.
  2. Register through our website for FEMA's Grant Portal. This will at least get them in the system and if all else fails DEMA can assist with funding on the back end.
  3. Continue to reach out to their normal health care and DHSS contacts in regards to the CARES Act funding that is being allocated to healthcare facilities.
