In support of nonprofit organizations serving Southeastern San Diego during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation will provide emergency grants to nonprofit organizations that have deep roots and strong experience supporting these communities. More specifically, 501c3 organizations that are disproportionately affected by this global pandemic and its economic consequences, including those serving food and providing educational services, transportation, senior support, mental health services and other emergency needs. The Southeastern San Diego COVID-19 Rapid Response Fund expects to move an initial round of grants within the next week with funds released on a rolling basis. Special thanks to JCNI Board Member Laila Aziz for her leadership of this initiative.
