Pittsburgh Mutual Aid is a collective of organizers and individuals who are coming together to assist the community during the COVID-19 crisis through providing economic relief. This fund aims to deliver at least $5k a week to those in Pittsburgh who are in need because they have lost income due to the COVID-19 crisis. For now, we hope to give amounts that are $250 or less.
We are doing our absolute best to prioritize people who may be more vulnerable than ever during this crisis, and people in communities who systematically have less access to social capital, family wealth, new job opportunities and other forms of support. This includes (but is not limited to) people over the age of 60, immunocompromised people, disabled people, BIPOC, and any people who are at risk of becoming unhoused or food insecure due to COVID-19.
We want to help as many people as possible and will be distributing funds based on the emergency nature of the request. If we don't have cash funds available for your request, we will contact you and do our best to connect you with resources and services that can help.
Please donate and share our campaign so we can once again prove that Pittsburgh is a city of bridges which we cross to help and support each other.
To apply for aid, please fill out the form. Please note that funds will not be shared until raised.
