United Way of Lee County has extended the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Intent to Apply, Risk Assessment and Application deadlines to 5 p.m. May 6.
The extension allows applicants an additional two weeks to complete the Intent to Apply and Risk Assessment, and an additional week for the programmatic application. During this time, United Way’s Director of Grants and Contracts Dan Campbell will be available to assist interested agencies with questions regarding their application and process.
The Lee Board of County Commissioners allocated over $16 million in ARPA funding to United Way to assist local, nonprofit agencies expand social services. This exciting partnership provides organizations within Lee County the opportunity to apply for funding to assist individuals in the community who were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Eligible agencies must be qualified to receive federal funds; have offered services to Lee County residents; have a service location(s) in the County; and delivered a project that responded to a public health or negative economic impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
