Remaining $20,000 available to nonprofits by lottery in September.
Grants Pass, Ore., August 25, 2022—
The Illinois Valley Community Development Organization (IVCanDO) and The Four Way Community Foundation have allocated $80,000 to nonprofit organizations in Josephine County from American Rescue Plan funds secured for Josephine County by State Representative Lily Morgan. The funds are intended to alleviate some effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on nonprofit organizations and the clients they serve.
“Together our two organizations consulted with other agencies about where the need seemed greatest,” said IVCanDO Executive Director Lindsey Jones. “Rather than require a hundred groups to compete for a dozen grants, we selected recipients according to local priorities.”
ARPA funds are for general relief; the nonprofits may use the funds as they see fit, although the money comes with a suggestion for its use based on local needs identified by the selection committee.
The remaining $20,000 will be distributed in a lottery process, details of which will be announced next week.
