Deadline extended to June 21 for non-profits to apply for ARPA funds

COVINGTON, Ky. – Non-profit agencies and organizations will have an additional eight days to apply for a piece of the $1.15 million the City of Covington is awarding to help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on Covington families and workers.

Instead of a June 13 deadline for submissions, the deadline has been moved to 4 p.m. June 21. The addendum can be seen on the City’s Procurement Portal by clicking “View Opportunity” next to “ARPA – Nonprofit Services Grant Program,” then searching for and downloading the appropriate document in the Documentation section. (As always, you need to register for a Bonfire account.)

The City issued a request for proposals May 25 for programs, services, and initiatives aimed at people who live in certain Census tracts identified by the federal government (i.e. “qualified Census tracts,” or QCTs, as seen in the attached map).

The programs don’t necessarily have to be new, but they have to represent at least an expansion or enhancement of the existing service delivery of an agency or agencies, should they be collaborating.

The original news release about the competitive application process – with details about eligibility – can be seen at Covington giving $1.15MM.

The City plans to publicize an additional addendum next week containing addresses in the QCTs, as soon as those are compiled by Planning and Development Services of Kenton County (PDS). That information will be made available on or before 4 p.m. on June 15.
