Harvard University recently announced that 27 Allston-Brighton nonprofit organizations and community groups were awarded emergency response grants for their continuing efforts in responding to COVID-19 related community needs.
Harvard University Allston-Brighton Emergency Response Grants were awarded to local groups and organizations that proposed projects or programs that will address pressing community needs such as food delivery, equipment purchases, technology support or educational programs and that will result in measurable, meaningful and immediate local impact.
“We hope that this support enables our neighbors in the Allston-Brighton community to respond to critical needs as they face some of the disruption and difficulties caused by COVID-19,” said Harvard President Larry Bacow. “We are grateful for and proud of our strong partnership with Mayor Walsh and the city of Boston and we are proud of the work we’re able to do together as we confront the challenges posed by the pandemic.”
“Harvard’s emergency response grant will help local organizations that are working to ensure our neighbors in Allston-Brighton are taken care of throughout this ongoing public health crisis,” Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh said when the emergency response grant was first announced. “This grant program will support the well-being of the neighborhood and we’re grateful for the University’s assistance.”
