Deadline is this Sunday to apply for Plumas County grants for COVID-related losses
Non-profit groups and businesses that suffered financially during COVID-19 now have an opportunity to recoup some of those losses, but the window to apply for help is closing. The deadline is Sunday, April 30.
Plumas County will provide grants of up to $10,000 to non-profit and for-profit entities with 25 or fewer employees based in Plumas County; $270,000 will be allocated for each of these groups. Public entities are not eligible for this funding opportunity.
The funding is being made available through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds. Plumas County has allocated $540,000 of its ARPA funds for this purpose. These funds are eligible for activities from March 3, 2021, through December 31, 2024.
Once awarded, a report worksheet will be provided. All grantees are expected to follow ARPA program requirements and provide regular reporting. The report will depend on the types of activities funded. ARPA program requirement can be found here: https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/coronavirus/assistance-for-state-local-and-tribal-governments/state-and-local-fiscal-recovery-funds.
Grant funds under this program will be available until the deadline of April 30, 2023. Interested businesses must submit an application to be considered for this opportunity. Plumas County is committed to effective, efficient, and transparent management of ARPA funds.
A complete overview of the program is available in the application. The application can be found on the County’s website:https://www.plumascounty.us/3027/Community-Grants. After going through the application, if you have any questions, contact Zachary Gately at [email protected] or 530-283-6414.
