Application Deadline for Hilton Head Island ARPA/SLFRF COVID-19 FundFebruary 10, 2022
The Community Foundation plans to distribute up to $161,175 additional dollars from the Hilton Head Island ARPA/SLFRF COVID-19 Fund. Last fall, 13 local nonprofits received $338,825 during the fund’s first grant cycle. The Town established the ARPA/SLFRF COVID-19 Fund at the Community Foundation to distribute $1 million of the more than $5 million it received through the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
All grant distributions will comply with federal guidelines and will address negative economic impacts caused by COVID-19, including healthcare, housing assistance, childcare and education, rent and utility assistance and food insecurity, among other pandemic-related impacts. The maximum amount per grant is $50,000.
Nonprofits eligible to apply for a grant include 501(c)(3) organizations providing services to low- and moderate-income residents of the Town of Hilton Head Island. Organizations must be able to verify the income level of program recipients.
An advisory committee consisting of community leaders and representatives from the Town of Hilton Head Island and the Community Foundation will review grant applications and determine grant awards.
Decisions will be made no later than March 21, 2022. All grants will be awarded no later than December 31, 2023.
