Pre-Application American Rescue Funds

The pre-application due date is Monday, November 15, 2021 at 4:00pm

Cumberland County is accepting Pre-applications from qualifying candidates that aim to advance community-driven solutions to recovery that deliver equitable outcomes and transformative change. Aid and investments will be targeted toward communities with the greatest needs and aligned with the priorities of people most impacted by the pandemic and resulting economic crises.

The deadline to submit a pre-application is Monday, November 15 at 4:00 p.m. The pre-applications will be reviewed by County staff to determine eligibility. Upon certification that the application qualifies for ARPA funding, the County will invite applicants to fill out a complete application.

The County is looking for significant projects that address critical regional needs and will demonstrate a lasting, positive impact. Applicants must seek a minimum of $100,000, and be prepared to demonstrate the project's qualifications and goals.

 Cumberland County is putting the highest priority on projects that address affordable housing, infrastructure, healthcare, workforce training and homelessness - but all projects that meet the qualified categories listed on the pre-application will be given fair consideration.
