HFHMV is Awarded $20,000


The Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, the Raymond John Wean Foundation and the Youngstown Foundation have created the Mahoning Valley COVID-19 Crisis Relief Grants for Nonprofits.

Focused currently on the impact of COVID-19, this funding is intended to become a long-term resource to assist our community now and in the future when needs arise. The Mahoning Valley Community Response Fund will provide support and resources to eligible organizations working with those disproportionately affected by an emergency or crisis, in this case COVID-19 and the consequences related to the virus’ outbreak.

Habitat Mahoning Valley was awarded $20,000 ($10,000 from The Youngstown Foundation; $10,000 from Community Foundation MV) to support homeowners that have purchased homes through Habitat for Humanity's homeownership program. All families served through this support are low-income and many are struggling to keep up with mortgage payments during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has also impacted Habitat for Humanity MV as they've halted construction on new homes and had to temporarily close both of their ReStore locations, which provides funding for the organization to build houses and enables them to work with families who need assistance.

This funding will support our mission of bringing people together to build houses, community, and hope in the Mahoning Valley.
