The We Are One | Somos Uno CARES Act Continuity Grants program was created by the Mayor and Council of Tucson to support small businesses, workers and families, and nonprofits by addressing necessary expenditures due to the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency.
The City of Tucson has selected Community Foundation for Southern Arizona to administer a portion of this funding to support local nonprofits via continuity grants. Women’s Foundation for Southern Arizona has been selected to administer grants to support workers and families, and the YWCA has been selected to administer grants to small businesses.
- The We Are One | Somos Uno CARES Act Continuity Grants program will provide one-time grants to nonprofit organizations up to $20,000 per organization. Applications will be reviewed and, if accepted, processed within 1-week of award notification.
- Based upon the charitable structure of CFSA, grants are limited to 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations and groups fiscally sponsored by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. They are not able to fund individuals or businesses directly, labor unions, or other 501(c)(4), 501(c)(5), and 501(c)(6) organizations. If you are an individual or business who is seeking support, please contact the Women’s Foundation for Southern Arizona or the YWCA.
- Have local leadership in the form of a board of directors or advisory committee, local financial support, and local program management and accountability. In the case of nationally sponsored organizations, no portion of the grant can be used to support the national, state, or regional entity.
- CFSA honors the rich diversity of community and promotes equal opportunities for all people. Awards made by CFSA’s grant panels support organizations that do not discriminate in their employment practices, volunteer opportunities, or delivery of programs and services on basis of Race, Religion, Gender or Gender Identity (including gender nonconformity and status as a transgender individual), Gender Expression, Sexual Orientation, Age, Ancestry, Citizenship, Ethnicity, Familial Status, Socioeconomic Status (economic circumstances), Color, Creed, Sex (including pregnancy), Phases of Parenthood, National Origin, Marital Status, Veteran Status (past, current or prospective service in the armed forces), Genetic Information, Physical Characteristics or Appearance, Mental or Physical Disability, or any other status prohibited by applicable law.
