News Release from Lane Co. Government

Posted on FlashAlert: May 16th, 2022 10:00 AM

Lane County will award $3 million in grants to assist nonprofits and public agencies that did not receive direct American Rescue Plan (ARPA) allocations as they recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. To apply, submit the required information contained in the Request for Applications packet found at www.LaneCounty.org/ARPA.

 

Lane County released a Request for Applications (RFA) that outlines how nonprofits and public agencies can apply. Awards will range from a minimum award of $10,000 and maximum award of $500,000 (limit one award per organization). Final awards will be determined by the Board of County Commissioners.

 

Since the first case of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was discovered in the United States, the pandemic has caused severe, intertwined public health and economic crises. The American Rescue Plan Act was signed into law in March 2021. Lane County’s direct allocation of the American Rescue Plan’s Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Fund was $74 million. In March 2022, the Lane County Board of Commissioners designated $3 million for community grants to support recovery from the pandemic.

 

To date, Lane County has allocated over $110 million in ARPA funding:

  • Housing – $22 million
  • Homelessness – $13.8 million
  • Aid to Nonprofits – $9.1 million
  • Public Health – $8.3 million
  • Public Safety – $17.5 million
  • COVID Response and Government Services – $19.7 million
  • Infrastructure – $19.7 million

 

Areas that will be prioritized for funding arose from community input, including the more than 1,800 responses from a community survey. Areas of focus include affordable housing, mental health services (especially for youth), projects that serve rural Lane County residents who live outside Eugene-Springfield, and projects that demonstrate innovation.

 

Lane County is prioritizing communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 public health emergency for ARPA-funded investments. Applications eligible for ARPA funding will be evaluated using different criteria, one of which is equity.

 

An information session for interested parties will be held virtually on Monday, May 23, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. (visit www.LaneCounty.org/ARPA for more information).

 

Applications for American Rescue Plan Community grants will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, July 6, 2022.
