Allegany Franciscan Ministries has joined together with other Funders in the Palm Beach region to establish a coordinated Coronavirus (COVID-19) Relief and Recovery application process. This funding process will provide assistance to nonprofit organizations across Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Counties whose staff, services, and clients have been impacted by a disaster.

Funding priorities include:

  • Emergency food, shelter and other basic needs
  • Expansion of service capacity related to increased demand for direct services
  • Access to health care services for uninsured and under-insured clients
  • Technology and other resources to allow your organization to continue to provide services
  • Reimbursement of lost revenue

Because we may receive a high volume of requests for these funds, applicants are advised that we do not expect to be able to cover all funding requests; and we may not be able to fund the full amount of each request. However, we are committed to make the best use of available resources to address the highest priority needs. 

To address these concerns, applicants must be nonprofit organizations that provide services to Palm Beach, Martin and/or St Lucie County residents. Government entities currently receiving funding from any of the funding partners in Martin and St. Lucie Counties are eligible to apply.

Applications can be accessed through the following links:

Palm Beach County Click here.

Martin County – Click here.

Funding will be made directly from the participating funder to the applicant agency. Final funding decisions and reporting requirements are exclusively the purview of the participating funder.
