WHO CAN APPLY
Social service agencies on behalf of individuals and families in crisis in the Berkshire Taconic area.
Neighbor-to-Neighbor provides emergency assistance for local residents who are in economic distress. Neighbor-to-Neighbor makes small grants (up to $1,000 during the response to COVID-19) to help those with overdue utilities, medical bills, short-term housing costs and transportation problems. Checks are written to the vendor (landlord, utility company, pharmacy or mechanic) on behalf of the community member in need. The funds are not intended for long-term or ongoing assistance, but for strategic intervention to help achieve a measure of stability and avert further crises.
Neighbor-to-Neighbor continues Berkshire Taconic’s tradition of providing support to individuals and families in dire straits. Neighbor-to-Neighbor raises thousands of dollars each year from neighbors wanting to help neighbors.
Berkshire Taconic partners with social service agencies to distribute Neighbor-to-Neighbor funds and link them with other social services.
Please be in touch with social service agencies to submit an application on your behalf.
Awards are up to $1,000. If a grant is awarded, the payment is sent directly to the vendor and not the individual.
