The Town of Fountain Hills has awarded 34 community non-profit organizations $5,000 through a Non-Profit Grant Program. The funding was made available by savings from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), which served as a one-time grant program to non-profit organizations within the Town of Fountain Hills impacted by COVID-19.
“The Town recognizes that many local businesses and non-profit organizations were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Mayor Ginny Dickey. “Last year, we were able to provide $300,000 in grants to some of our local businesses through savings made possible by Covid relief funding. Using some of the funds made available this year through the American Rescue Plan, we are grateful for the opportunity to award grants to many of our local non-profits.”
