COVID-19 Community Resource Grant

Brown County recognizes the important role certain community support organizations play in providing needed services for Brown County residents, particularly in times of economic distress. Community support organizations that help provide housing services, food, childcare programs, employment opportunities, and access to social and health services mitigate the demand on County social service and public health programs.

The County further recognizes that community support organizations have been impacted by the current economic environment caused by the COVID-19 public health crisis in much the same way as businesses have been impacted. The County has, therefore, established a program to provide support for community organizations to assist those organizations in meeting the needs of Brown County residents affected by the COVID-19 public health crisis.

The Brown County Community Resource Grant Program will be administered through the County Administrator’s office.

Applications must be submitted by November 6th

Organizations are also encouraged to apply for all other available COVID-19 related funding programs offered by the U.S. federal government, the State of Minnesota and other granting/loaning agencies. Organizations applying for and receiving funds through these programs are still eligible to receive a grant from the County. Prioritization will be given to organizations that have not received funding from other sources.
