Pandemic Recovery Funding Available Next Month for Sussex County Non-Profits


More COVID-19 pandemic recovery funding is on the way to help not-for-profits in Sussex County. An additional $1.2 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding will be made available to eligible non-profits during an application round that opens next month. This is in addition to the $5 million in funding last year that non-profits received after the County allocated its $45.5 million allotment of ARPA funds, distributed to states and local governments nationwide to assist in recovery.

To qualify, non-profit organizations, among other criteria, must be recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) entities, and provide service – with at least one physical location – in Sussex County. Eligible organizations can apply for up to $40,000 in economic impact relief assistance under the County’s ARPA program.

Applications for this newest funding round will be accepted beginning April 3rd. The deadline to apply is May 1st.
