Our local nonprofit organizations do so much to help our communities every day. Their work has become increasingly important during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of County Commissioners has set $10 million in federal CARES Act funds to help local nonprofit organizations.
This program will help pay for expenses to provide services to help individuals affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Expenses allowed with these grants include mortgage or rent, utilities, and costs related to food insecurities, public health, PPE supplies, technology, and other services.
Documentation will be required to show a relationship between the proposed expenses and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grants of up to $100,000 will be awarded for expenses (either already incurred or anticipated) between March 1 and December 30, 2020
Nonprofit organizations organized under sections 501(c)(3), 501(c)(4), or 501(c)(6) of the U.S. Internal Revenue Code can apply for these grants. Organizations under those sections who have served individuals affected by COVID-19 in any way should apply for these grants.
These grants will be available until Oct. 30, 2020 or until funding is depleted.
