The COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund is now closed. The County will open up several COVID-related grant opportunities with American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds later in 2022. Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. If you would like to be notified as opportunities are posted, please contact Grants Assistant Gabby Slocum at and request to be added to our nonprofit listserv.

The American Rescue Plan provides $350 billion in emergency funding for state, local, territorial and Tribal governments. For detailed information on guidelines for use, fact sheets and other information, visit the U.S. Department of Treasury’s State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) page.
