COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund

As the COVID-19 virus continues to disrupt daily life and impact the economy in the U.S., MALA is committed to supporting those in our community who are affected most.  In reflection of this, MALA is launching an Emergency Assistance program which will offer micro-grants ranging $50-$200 to help individuals and small businesses cover expenses incurred as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.   


Grants will be crowdfunded through MALA’s broad network of philanthropists and sponsors, and will be distributed to applicants who demonstrate that the Coronavirus outbreak has had a significant impact on their livelihood.  All are welcome to apply!  Please submit the application form below and allow 5-7 business days for a response.  Please note that application responses will be kept confidential and will not be shared or published.
