The Center for Y2K & Society announces the launch of its Web
site (http://www.y2kcenter.org) to support foundations and nonprofit
organizations working to prepare communities for potential
disruptions caused by the Y2K computer date problem.

In addition to ongoing awareness work, the Center plans to give
away more than a quarter of a million dollars by the end of July
to provide financial support to enable existing nonprofit
organizations working on Y2K issues to expand their work.
The Center also hopes to motivate other organizations to join
or lead community efforts to prepare for Y2K.

The site details how to apply for grants to support local, state and
regional nonprofit organizations anticipating societal problems
resulting from Y2K computer problems; programs aim to support
community planning; protection of persons especially vulnerable
to impacts from Y2K; assurance of adequate healthcare services;
protection of public safety and the environment; work with public
officials; preparation by smaller communities; public education;
and news coverage. The next deadline for applications is
July 1st, 1999. For details, see http://www.y2kcenter.org/grants/.
