2022 ARPA Nonprofit Sustainability Grants Applications Open Through August 26

Fairfax County’s Department of Neighborhood and Community Services (NCS) invites nonprofit safety net organizations to apply for a new round of grants funded through the federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The pandemic and its lingering effects have negatively impacted nonprofits through reduced revenues, increased expenses and community need, and persistent staffing concerns. These grants are intended to help nonprofit safety net organizations mitigate those impacts and remain sustainable partners in serving our community.

To be eligible, organizations must:

  • Be 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) organizations; AND
  • Provide services to Fairfax County residents in one or more of the following categories: Financial Stability, Food and Nutrition, Health, Literacy/Educational Development Attainment, Housing, Positive Behaviors/Healthy Relationships, and Support/Community/Social Networks; AND
  • Focus on primarily serving people who are more vulnerable to self-sufficiency problems, including people with limited income; immigrants and refugees; people with disabilities; and people who are historically subject to disparate access to opportunities.

One-time grants of up to $75,000 will be made to eligible organizations, based on organizational size.

The simple application process must be submitted by Friday, August 26, 2022. For more information and to apply, please visit the ARPA Nonprofit Sustainability Grants webpage.

For assistance or questions, please email or phone 703-324-2155, TTY 711.
