The North Carolina Community Foundation has completed grantmaking from the North Carolina Healing Communities Fund. Nearly $5.5 million was awarded through the fund.
Launched by NCCF in July 2020, the NC Healing Communities Fund supports long-term, unmet needs for organizations embedded in or serving marginalized communities in North Carolina that were disproportionately affected by the pandemic. This includes communities of color, communities of lower wealth, communities in mostly rural areas, and communities where English is not the primary language.
A total of 149 grants, ranging from $25,000 to $55,000, were made from the NC Healing Communities Fund across the state by an advisory committee beginning in January 2021. The committee was comprised of representatives from the nonprofit, health, and human services sectors, rural and faith communities, and other partners. The average grant amount was $37,000.
