As part of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (“ARPA”), local fiscal recovery funds have been allocated to Pacific County to help mitigate the economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Pacific County is happy to announce that a portion of its “ARPA” funds are available to assist nonprofit organizations that suffered a negative economic impact as a result of the public health emergency. As part of the application process, nonprofits will be asked to demonstrate a negative economic impact caused by the pandemic.
Examples may include – but are not necessarily limited to – showing a loss of revenue via fundraising in 2020 vs. 2019, demonstrating an inability to provide certain services as a result of the pandemic, etc.
The application period for nonprofits begins on Thursday, November 4, 2021. ARPA funds are only available for a limited time. In accordance with the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Interim Final Rule regarding the usage of Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (“SLFRF”), Pacific County may incur ARPA expenditures until December 31, 2024. However, funds may be exhausted prior to this deadline.
The “ARPA” application packet for nonprofits is available on the Pacific County website: www.co.pacific.wa.us/arpa If you have any questions, please contact Paul Plakinger, Management & Fiscal Analyst: • telephone: 360-875-9300 extension 2243 • email: firstname.lastname@example.org
