As needs in the East End community are just as acute in the second year of the pandemic, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of the South Fork has announced its High Impact Community Outreach program will bring financial assistance to a select group of institutions from the five East End townships as well as the Shinnecock Indian Nation.
A press release from the U.U.C.S.F. says that applications will be considered from East End nonprofit groups, grassroots organizations, and national organizations with East End offices that support children and families, single mothers, and people of color. Applicants should champion early childhood education, the environment, cultural education, and health care equity.
“Our focus is shifting in our second year,” said David Holstein, a grant evaluation committee member, “from the immediate dislocations generated by Covid to the populations and needs that have been underserved, excluded, and require support.”
The deadline for applications, available at uucsf.org/hico-overview/, is May 28. U.U.C.S.F. directs any questions to [email protected].
