About the Program
The Non-Profit Assistance (NPA) Program is designed to provide grant funding to local non-profits experiencing a financial shortfall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), the NPA Program reimburses eligible non-profits $25,000 to $50,000 for operating capital expenses, such as payroll, insurance, lease/mortgage payments, inventory, marketing, accounting, and other supplies related to COVID-19 or documented revenue shortfall due to COVID-19 pandemic. This is the second round of applications being accepted and the City anticipates awarding up to $200,000 of ARPA funds to non-profit organizations. Please note, if you were awarded in the first round of application cycles, your organization would not be eligible at this time to reapply for additional funding.
