The Salt Lake County COVID Response & Recovery Team is soliciting applications for the Community Partners Grant Program (“CPGP”). The CPGP is intended to support non-profit and community-based organizations engaged in combatting the impacts of COVID-19 within their particular constituencies.
Salt Lake County recognizes that community organizations provide invaluable expertise and services that cannot be provided by government entities alone. It is imperative that non-profits survive the current economic climate, remaining capable of providing necessary services now and into the future. CPGP will award federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) funds to non-profit organizations working in four areas within Salt Lake County:
- Housing and Homeless Services
- Education and Childcare
- Business Training and Support
- Arts and Culture
ORGANIZATIONS MUST HAVE EXISTED AS A 501c3 OR 501c6 FOR AT LEAST 5 YEARS TO BE ELIGIBLE TO APPLY. CPGP will only support new services, related staffing, and COVID-19 costs, incurred between July 1 and December 30, 2020. No previously budgeted expenditures or lost revenue replacement will be funded. All funds must be spent and reported to the County by November 30, 2020.
An organization may apply for multiple programs/projects if they can adequately account for how each program is tied to the impact of COVID-19. If offering more than one program, do not submit a separate application; incorporate both programs into the same application.
Organizations are eligible to apply if they have received other CARES funding. However, awardees will be be expected to adhere to federal guidelines and ensure they are not duplicating uses.
Applicants will be able to counsel with CPGP staff during the application process as needed.
