The Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh made additional emergency funding distributions last week to its beneficiary agencies and some congregations, bringing the total dollar amount of funds disbursed since the coronavirus crisis began to $775,875.

New distributions made on April 29 included: $131,075 in grants, plus a $100,000 loan, to Hebrew Free Loan Association to enable it to make additional loans to community members; financial support for synagogue congregants, which will be available through individual congregations’ rabbis’ discretionary funds; and funding for a van for Jewish Family and Community Services to help with food distribution to homebound service recipients.

Additional funding in this third round of grants went to: the Aleph Institute to help support families in need of immediate financial assistance; the Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh for technology, equipment and sanitation supplies that will support AgeWell Pittsburgh’s Grab and Go meals for seniors and other programs; and Emma Kaufmann Camp, which will receive a matching grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation’s “All Together” matching grant program.
