The City of Scranton has awarded a contract to the Scranton Area Community Foundation to implement the coordination of its ARPA program for non-profits.
Funding may be applied for and used to support eligible non-profits impacted by the pandemic to mitigate financial hardships including, but not limited to:
- decreased revenue
- financial insecurity
- capacity to withstand future financial hardship
- increased costs
- challenges covering other costs, such as costs of mortgage, rent or utilities, and other operation costs
In addition, funding may be used for non-profit development (e.g., websites, technology or marketing, or new buildouts).
Funding applications may also be submitted for eligible capital expenditures. To be eligible, capital expenditures must be detailed in the application and must directly respond to the pandemic and be proportional to the demonstrated impact. They must also serve or provide benefits to City residents.
