Bowling Green City Council has allocated $500,000 of federal ARPA funds to be used by non-profit organizations impacted by the COVID pandemic. Non-profit organizations, whose clientele are Bowling Green residents most negatively impacted by COVID (e.g. lower income, those with food insecurity, unemployed), are encouraged to apply for grant funding of up to $50,000. Eligible organizations must have been in operation from the official start of the COVID pandemic lock-down in Ohio (March 15, 2020) through the end of the calendar year 2021.
A completed application and supporting documents must be submitted together to be considered for funding. The program application period will close on March 31, 2023. Interested non-profit applicants should contact Martha Woelke, Community Development Administrator for the City of Bowling Green, at 419-354-6220 or via email to get more information and an application package.
