Grants to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to respond to urgent community needs related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended to provide access to food to COVID-impacted individuals as well as to provide people of color and/or homebound adults with access to the COVID-19 vaccine. All funding must be directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The majority of the clients served must be in the Lake County communities of Waukegan, North Chicago, Zion, Round Lake, and Highwood.
United Way of Lake County launched the Lake County COVID-19 Response & Recovery Fund, in collaboration with Lake County Government, to unite the funds raised by Lake County’s philanthropies, corporations and individuals to be disbursed to nonprofit organizations across the county.
United Way of Lake County recognizes that many smaller organizations and organizations led by people of color are doing critical work serving communities and populations that are disproportionally impacted by COVID-19. United Way encourages these organizations to apply for this funding.

United Way intends to fund several organizations.
- Organizations with a budget of under $100,000 should not request more than $20,000.
- If an organization requests more than half its annual budget, or over $40,000, it must present a compelling case as to why they are uniquely able to provide this service and how they will manage the accounting and reporting.
Funding must be spent within 30 days.
