REQUESTING FINANCIAL SUPPORT.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Greater Charlotte Area Mutual Aid is launching a microgrant program to support emergency financial assistance. In accordance with our mission, our COVID-19 Microgrant Program aims to serve as an emergency financial resource and a tool for resilience for those in the Charlotte community experiencing financial crisis during this ongoing state of emergency.
To request financial support, please complete the form using the button above or clicking here. The form will ask for the following information:
Personal information, including your legal name, date of birth, address, contact information, and photo ID
Financial information, including your most recent 1040 form and proof of financial crisis
Personal circumstances, including your housing situation and written description of your extenuating circumstances
If you are unable to provide the information listed above, you are not disqualified from receiving financial support. As mutual aid, we believe in eliminating barriers to access support. Consequently, we also accept other tax documentation, such as Form 1099 and W-2 forms, and pay stubs. Moreover, we understand that not everyone can provide a permanent address. If you have worked with another organization or nonprofit for support, we also accept Community Verification Letters as supplementary materials, which can help us verify your request.
We understand acknowledge the difficulty in finding the necessary documentation to submit requests for support. However, we want to help you. If you have any questions or need assistance throughout the process, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
