Community Resources

Resources for community members

As we all combat the difficult hardships of these uncertain times, all of us at Save the Harbor wanted to take some time to call out resources that have been made available to Boston residents and members of our shared community who may be facing the most serious financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

City of Boston Rental Relief Fund
The City of Boston is dedicating $3 million in city funds to help Boston residents at risk of losing their rental housing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Boston Artist Relief Fund 
The City of Boston's Artist Relief Fund will award grants of $500 and $1,000 to individual artists who live in Boston whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by COVID-19.

Supporting Bostonians in need during COVID-19
Union Capital Boston is collecting one-time direct gifts in a campaign to send Visa gift cards to those who need it urgently in the Greater Boston area. 100% of your donation will go immediately to families in need.

Restaurant Strong Fund
The Greg Hill Foundation has teamed up with Samuel Adams to raise awareness and funds to provide grants to full-time restaurant workers in Massachusetts who are dependent on wages plus tips to cover basic living expenses and provide for their families.

Greater Boston College Student Emergency Relief Mini Grants 
College-enrolled undergraduate students displaced by COVID-19 who meet the Leadership Brainery's criteria and express the most need will receive a one-time $100 mini grant.
