ARPA Nonprofit Grant Funding

ARPA Nonprofit Grant Funding

In response to the economic, programmatic and service impact to Wichita Falls non-profit organizations due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Wichita Falls City Council allocated $1.5 million of the $29.1 million in awarded American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to create a grant program to assist local non-profits in their recovery.

The Wichita Falls American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Nonprofit Grant Program (WF-ARPA-NGP) was developed in response to the economic crisis facing our nonprofit community due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Grant funds are now available via an application process for non-profit organizations to submit eligible proposals for grant program. The funds can only be used to cover costs that were incurred during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 The objectives of the WF-ARPA-NGP Fund are to:

  • Support immediate economic stabilization of local nonprofit organizations
  • Support projects (both capital and programmatic) that will lead to further prevention and increased service levels caused by COVID-19

Awards under this grant are intended for projects benefiting the community that may involve single or multiple organizations. Non-profit organizations are eligible for WF-ARPA-NGP award; however, projects must have a community impact and are intended to be self-sustaining. Funds may be limited based on number of applications received and requested funding. 

The following links and information will provide guidance and information regarding the grant program and funding parameters.
