Applications accepted on an ongoing basis



The North Carolina Healing Communities Fund provides grants and technical assistance for nonprofit organizations that have experienced increased demand for services and revenue loss during the COVID‐19 pandemic. Funding will support nonprofits working to ensure healthy living and well‐being. Priority is given to communities of lower wealth, communities of color, rural communities, and those where English is not the primary language.

Some awardees will receive capacity-building services in addition to grant funding with a focus on building capacity and developing rural leaders, organizations, and coalitions.
