In a recent conversation with community-serving organizations, First Selectman Matt Hoey and consultant George Krivda, we announced our approach for distributing $500,000 of ARPA funding, which starts in June with a grant workshop followed by a September application deadline.
During the meeting, many nonprofits shared significant COVID-19 impacts, including lost income, smaller staff, increased costs, and heavier service usage. Hoey explains that the ARPA goal is to find things that are sustainable, will have a multi-year impact, and address the post-pandemic emerging needs.
All nonprofits impacted by COVID-19 that serve Guilford residents are encouraged to apply.
