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. 

 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

Beginning in September 2022, staff began work with a subcommittee appointed by the Mayor consisting of Councilors Smith and Browning, along with other local non-profit leaders to establish a grant award process, review grant applications and make a funding recommendation to the City Council for final award. Grant applications were sent to 200 non-profit organizations, with $1.5 million in funding for 31 organizations approved by the City Council in January 2023. Funds were distributed to the organizations in late February/early Mach of 2023.
