Community Foundation of the Lowcountry Announces Hilton Head Island ARPA/SLFRF Covid-19 Fund Grant GuidelinesOctober 22, 2021
One million dollars will be dispersed from the more than $5 million the town received through the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The funds were provided to local governments to help them respond to COVID-19.
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 citizens 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. The first grant cycle will start immediately, with the application deadline of November 30, 2021. Additional cycles will be defined as needed.
