Since September 1st, we have awarded over $12,000 to 84 households and with cold weather we have seen a dramatic increase in demand.
COVID-19 QUICKLY CHANGED the economic reality for many households in Tompkins County. Unemployment, temporary lay-offs, and reduced work hours suddenly made it difficult for many families to afford basic household needs. People who had never been in need of local services before suddenly need help.
That's why this summer, United Way of Tompkins County partnered with 2-1-1 to create the new United Way/ 2-1-1 COVID-19 Response Program. This program provides eligible households with grants up to $500 for qualified expenses.
If you or someone you know is in need of help please call 2-1-1 at
1-877-277-8667 to learn more about eligibility.
