We appreciate all the hard work that you and your teams are putting into providing much-needed relief within your communities.

As of mid-August, ZoomGrants has facilitated over 100 unique COVID-related grant programs for our clients, giving us the opportunity to observe things that have been highly successful, as well as some things that have created unnecessary challenges.  This resource document contains some of the best practices that we have observed, whether you anticipate receiving several hundred applications, or even several thousand. 

Federal guidance continues to be updated, so we have direct links below to government resources, as well as advocacy groups, so you can keep up with official policies and recommendations.

Several grant programs are listed below, as they were presented to the public.  If you see something you like, we can copy any of those over to your account. In this case, plagiarism can be the highest of compliments.  Feel free to reach out to us if you have questions or would like to see specific ways we can help.

We know there is still a lot of work to be done to get through this, and we are here to help in any way that we can.  Above all, we hope you continue to be safe out there!
