Cabarrus County is dedicating a portion of more than $42 million received in American Rescue Plan Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds to help local for-profit and non-profit agencies based in or serving Cabarrus County.
The funding is available to meet a variety of local needs, including support for households, small businesses, impacted industries, essential workers and communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis.
To make the best use of the funds, the County is calling on local for-profit and non-profit agencies to submit proposals for projects aligned to the acceptable uses, which include:
Deputy County Manager Rodney Harris believes the flexibility of the grants will encourage businesses and non-profits to apply.
“This is an investment in the people who kept Cabarrus open,” Harris said. “Applicants can customize their request to meet a tailored business or community need. We’ll consider any project that aligns with the requirements. This opportunity is a pathway to recovery for our community.”
Local administration of the plan includes a Request for Proposals (RFP) process. The proposal deadline is August 6, 2021 at 5 p.m.
