We are getting a lot of questions about 501c6 organizations eligibility - Melissa, can you address?
Melissa Freeman
35:47
501c6 organizations may not apply. Only 501c3s. Sorry.
Stephanie Swanson

Can they apply to the recovery fund?
Melissa Freeman

OCF can't make grants to 501c6s.

o.k. thanks - you'll want to make a statement about that cuz we have a lot of Q's coming in on that topic

Hi Jamey, this is Max. I think it’s fair to say that BodyVox would be viewed as an arts organization. We’ve been working with a variety of arts orgs and arts funders - and there is going to be a pooled fund for arts organizations for those that have designated arts funds. If you have applied through the OCF Covid Grant portal, your application will be in that pool to be reviewed by the coalition. I hope that helps.

Hi Caroline - Craft3 has dealt directly with several municipalities. Right now we are chewing and swallowing the first round, but are open to additional conversations. Also there has been good work done by Community Lending Works as I'm sure you know.
Melissa Freeman

Please submit an application through OCF. thanks Ashley!
Adam Zimmerman

Sure. We have done both so far. The grant making process is more straight forward and quicker. We are pushing donor money to small businesses through a process we set up.
