Nonprofit organizations can now apply for an additional grant program to address impacts from the pandemic, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer announced.
NEW CASTLE — Nonprofit organizations can now apply for an additional grant program to address impacts from the pandemic, New Castle County Executive Matt Meyer announced.
Nonprofits working to address needs in communities and organizations who experienced economic burden due to COVID-19 are encouraged to apply.
“We understand that so many Delaware families are facing extraordinary pressures right now,” Mr. Meyer said. “We know nonprofit organizations are often on the front lines in addressing these pressures, and while we are not able to address every need, we are committed to partnering with organizations in our county to get resources and services, consistent with federal regulations, to continue to reimagine what our county and state can be.”
Agencies can visit here through Feb. 24 to apply.
This program is part of the $9.55 million allocated for New Castle County-based nonprofit organizations from the county’s overall American Rescue Plan Act funding. Applications will be reviewed for federal funding requirements, with assistance by the compliance partner Guidehouse.
In the American Rescue Plan Act signed into law by President Joe Biden in March 2021, $108 million was earmarked for the county to address the impact of COVID-19. The payment was provided over two years and must be expended by Dec. 31, 2024.
