In response to the recent civil unrest in Baltimore City, United Way of Central Maryland (UWCM), in partnership with the State of Maryland, established the MD Unites Fund. This Fund will support humanitarian relief efforts in, and the not-for-profit organizations delivering services to the residents of, the affected neighborhoods (as identified in the grant application). UWCM will award funds from the MD Unites Fund in phases: the initial phase will address the extraordinary demand for services in response to the civil unrest. Priority will be given to those organizations headquartered in the affected communities. Subsequent phases will seek to address longer-term strategies around systems-level barriers.

The application for funding in the initial phase is now available. This is a competitive grant opportunity. Please visit our website, www.uwcm.org, for more information and to access the application. Applications are due electronically by 4:00p.m. on Friday, May 15.

Owners of Damaged Property in City Encouraged to Check Insurance Policies – The Maryland Insurance Administration provided the following message: “Property owners and business owners whose property was damaged in the recent violence in Baltimore City should contact their insurance agents or carriers to see if they are covered. Many policies, both for commercial and personal property, have provisions for civil unrest. In addition, comprehensive auto policies may cover damage from the violence. It’s important to note, however, that not all policies include this coverage. If you are unsure whether your policy covers this situation, check with your agent, broker, or insurance company. As the state’s insurance regulator, the MIA can: 1) answer questions about different types of insurance; 2) explain your rights and suggest ways to work out problems with your insurance company; or 3) investigate whether a company did what it said it would do in its contract with you and, if any laws or rules were broken, take action against the company. If you need assistance with a claim, call 410-468-2000 or 1-800-492-6116.
