About

United Way of Greater Newark’s (UWGN) mission is to disrupt the cycle of poverty by convening, collaborating and investing in strategies to improve outcomes for children and Families. UWGN has a long history of convening disaster funds in the community. After 9/11, UWEWH established the 9/11 fund, the Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund and most recently, the Newark Water Fund. To that end, in order to support the community and our non-profit partners during the COVID-19 crisis, we have established the Community COVID-19 Fund.

United Way of Greater Newark has the technical capacity to run a disaster fund for the community of this scale. UWGN has convened conversations with partners in our collaboratives as well as partners who provide social service relief to vulnerable populations. UWGN also follows the guidelines established by FEMA (the Four Phases of Emergency Management) and sets up the fund to respond to the four phases: Preparedness, Mitigation, Response and Reovery.

The Community COVID-19 Fund would have funds that address the 4 phases of the disaster and support long-term recovery in the community. This is a regional fund serving our 13-municipality footprint including Newark, Irvington, East Orange, West Orange, South Orange, Orange, Belleville, Nutley, Maplewood, Kearny, Harrison, East Newark, and North Arlington.
