|Greetings YDEKC Members and Friends:
While there is nothing normal about these times, we hope some relief may be coming to you and your organizations through local responses like Round One grants from the COVID-19 Response Fund housed at the Seattle Foundation, and from federal emergency funds through the second and third COVID-19 Federal Stimulus Packages — particularly the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) that opened on Friday, April 3rd.
We also want to remind you that Census 2020 is still open, and counting each and every one of us is critical for federal funding and more for the next decade. This Outreach Toolkit from partners in King County can help to ensure populations who are often undercounted are counted this time around.
Finally, use #ELOresponse in your social media posts to show how youth development organizations are responding to the current crisis and to share what your team is doing! And please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter for more resources to support young people, leaders and organizations to thrive.
In service and gratitude,The YDEKC team
Youth Development Executives of King County
