COVID-19 Emergency Fund Grant Application

There have been adverse effects as we’ve seen businesses close, emergency healthcare supplies limited, and many ineligible for public assistance. The Asian American Commission is proud to launch this fund in the amount of $10,000 to support community efforts to fight for some of the most vulnerable communities. These one-time grants ranging from $200 to $1,000 will be made available on a rolling basis until funds are depleted.
