ANC6B is responding to the DC City Council’s encouragement to use a portion of ANC6B operating funds “to support organizations providing humanitarian relief, including food or supplies.”
The Commission has allocated $45,000 of its administrative reserve for grants to organizations providing humanitarian relief in Ward 6.
According to a press release, the Commission says, “We recognize that this is a very modest effort in the face of the havoc of the pandemic, but we hope it will be a significant contribution to the important work being undertaken by the grant recipients.”
Organizations serving Capitol Hill and Ward 6 can download a grant the application from the ANC6B website here https://bit.ly/2NCuYgZ . The suggested request range for grants is between $5K and $15K; final submission date is July 13.
The Commission notes that in offering a grant project designed to address an emergency, ANC6B is most interested in funding organizations with programs already in place — those who can use the grant funds immediately to accelerate their humanitarian efforts.
For additional information about the grant program please contact Commissioner Jerry Sroufe at 6B02@anc.dc.gov.
