American Rescue Plan (ARPA)

About

The American Rescue Plan (ARPA) is a federal initiative created to alleviate many of the challenges communities are facing during the COVID-19 pandemic. The City of Winooski will receive about $2 million in federal COVID-19 relief funds over the next couple of years. These funds will be used to respond to the ongoing negative impacts of the pandemic. Over the coming months, opportunities for community engagement will be available to help prioritize the use of ARPA funding.

Now Accepting COVID-19 Recovery Grant Applications for Nonprofit Organizations

The City of Winooski is now accepting COVID-19 recovery grant applications from nonprofit organizations. Has your nonprofit met the increased demand of Winooski residents experiencing COVID-19 pandemic health, housing, and economic impacts? Has your nonprofit dealt with sustained expense increases due to both increased demand and now increasing inflation? You may be eligible for grant funding up to $10,000.

This program is the result of the City Council’s approval of emergency assistance funding to businesses from the overall Winooski municipal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) allocation.
