United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra's Emergency Assistance Fund (EAF)
2020 Application Instructions & Guidelines
Our funding focus is serving northern Nevadans who have been most impacted or lost wages due to the COVID-19 pandemic and assist them in meeting basic, immediate needs when they have no other resources. Funds will be allocated to non-profit organizations and units of government who have experience in delivering direct assistance to people in need. The intent of the Emergency Assistance Fund is to supplement and expand current available resources and not to substitute or reimburse ongoing programs and services, or to start new programs.
Eligibile organizations are invited to request funds to provide emergency food, shelter, one-time rental/mortgage and utility assistance to people in need. Applications and forms can be downloaded below. A complete application will include the application form and the applicable category form(s).
