Grant guidelines and decision making framework for granting ARPA funds
Our organization is partnering with our county to support their grantmaking efforts for APRA (American Rescue Plan Act) funding for nonprofits. They would like to grant us $500,000 to then create a Nonprofit Economic Recovery fund. We will provide unrestricted funding to our local nonprofit organizations from this fund to support organizational resiliency and recovery. As we know other organizations have already engaged in this type of grantmaking, we were wondering if anyone has examples of the following they'd be willing to share...and lessons learned if you have any!
- Sample application questions
- Decision-making matrix for evaluating the grant applications for our committee
- Reporting framework
