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 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 addresses the post-pandemic emerging needs.
All nonprofits impacted by COVID that serve Guilford residents are encouraged to apply.
