American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding For Non-Profits
The Riverside County Board of Supervisors has allocated $1,000,000 in funding to the COVID- 19 Community Improvement (CID) Fund to support pandemic relief efforts undertaken by non-profit organizations. Grants will be provided to eligible non-profits providing direct relief services and/or serving populations disproportionally impacted by the pandemic. The Board of Supervisors in compliance with U.S. Department of Treasury guidelines has established the following funding objectives for this grant opportunity:
- Support urgent COVID-19 response efforts carried out by non-profit agencies to continue to decrease spread of the virus and bring the pandemic under control
- Support immediate economic stabilization for households and businesses
- Address systemic public health and economic challenges that have contributed to the inequal impact of the pandemic
- Mitigate demonstrated financial hardship resulting from COVID-19 public health emergency including covering payroll, mortgages or rent, and other operating expenses
If your non-profit has been affected by the pandemic in one of these categories, you may be eligible for grant funding. Riverside County is hosting a virtual workshop on ARPA funding for non-profits from 2-4pm on October 13th. For more information on the workshop, click here for the flyer or e-mail email@example.com
