There are multiple ways local nonprofits may apply for ARPA assistance.
1. Community Improvement Designation funds support valuable services and projects addressing needs in communities across Riverside County. If you represent a local nonprofit, read more information on the application and eligibility process here, then use the links below to apply directly with a Board of Supervisor's office.
Nonprofits can click here to see a power point from the Oct. 13, 2021 workshop for information on how to apply for funding.
2. The county created a nonprofit roundtable to provide recommendations on how best to fund local nonprofits. On May 2, 2023, the Board of Supervisors approved contracts with three subrecipients to issue $14.5 million in grants to local nonprofits through the nonprofit roundtable's newly created Riverside County Nonprofit Assistance Fund.
Local nonprofits may apply for funding with the subrecipients listed below, within the approved funding categories:
- Inland Southern California United Way, $6.3 million available to local nonprofits for direct funding support
- Inland Empire Community Foundation, $6.8 million available to local nonprofits for programmatic funding support
- Regional Access Project, $1.3 million available to local nonprofits for technical assistance
Interested parties may attend an applicants conference to learn more about the application process on July 27, 2023 at 10am.
