Non-Profit Assistance Program

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. The City anticipates awarding up to $300,000 of ARPA funds to non-profit organizations.
