Grants of up to $15,000 to Illinois nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to address the needs of girls and women in the wake of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Funding is intended for programming and operating support within the focus areas of economic stability, freedom from gender-based violence, and access to quality health care. Eligible applicants serve Cook County, north of the City of Chicago and east of Highway 43, and all of Lake County.
This spring CFW continues to be interested in funding organizations that are envisioning COVID-19 recovery that centers women, in particular women of color. They are looking for innovative ways of creating a gender-responsive recovery, addressing the disparate impact of the pandemic. Priority areas include:
Some examples of effort within those priority areas could include workforce development strategies that not only get women back into the workforce but consider their long-term economic security; innovative plans to address the crisis in childcare and unpaid care work; approaches to increase access to care (mental, physical and reproductive services) and improve black maternal health; or defenses against the attacks on the array of reproductive health services particularly abortion access.
Estimated Size of Grant:
Funds awarded are a one-year grant for work being done between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.
