Lancaster County Community Requests for ARPA Funding – Round 2 Deadline
Office of the Lancaster County Commissioners
Unallocated funds remain from the $106 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding Lancaster County received. As such, the County is allocating approximately $6 million for Round 2 of Community ARPA proposals. Although the guidelines for community proposals have been updated, they are quite similar to the first-round. Eligible applicants include municipalities, municipal/county authorities, nonprofit organizations, and public safety organizations/departments, such as law enforcement, fire, emergency medical services, and emergency medical agencies. Applications can be emailed, mailed, or dropped off at the Lancaster County Government Administration Center.
Award Amount: Varies, determined on a case-by-case basis
Required Match: ARPA cannot be the sole source of funds for the project (unless a municipality has provided an allocation of its own ARPA funds). It is difficult and would not be prudent to establish a minimum percentage criterion; however, the more funding provided beyond the County ARPA requested dollars, the better. This includes municipalities that have received ARPA funds. Application shall include a complete breakdown of project cost and committed sources of funds to cover the identified cost.
Applications Due: August 31, 2023
