CARES Act Funding

We’re delighted to announce that the CREATE Foundation will oversee $1.6 million in CARES Act funding ($786,261.07 for nonprofits and $786,261.07 for food pantries) to award grants of up to $4,000 to Eligible Grantees.  An applicant must apply either as a “nonprofit entity” or a “food pantry.” An organization that meets both definitions, such as a nonprofit that operates a food pantry but also has other programs, may qualify as an Eligible Grantee for both funds.
Applications will be accepted until January 15, 2021. You may create an account and access the application at

NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
     Diaper Bank of the Delta          

The Diaper Bank of the Delta (DBD) is a 501(c)3 organization addressing the 1 in 3 families experiencing diaper need and the 1 in 4 women and girls experiencing period proverty in Mississippi. DBD is a member of the National Diaper Bank Network and Baby 2 Baby.

DBD provides diapers, wipes, books, period products and other infant and toddler related items to families experiencing a financial or disaster crisis. DBD also provides education and linkage to community resources, and we advocate on behalf of women and children.

CareNow in Holly Springs recently partnered with DBD to distribute diapers in Holly Springs.
