The City of Jamestown American Rescue Plan Non-Profit Assistance Program NPAP in the form
of competitive grant funding is designed to assist Jamestown non-profit organizations recover
from the COVID-19 pandemic and corresponding economic crisis. A major focus to relieve the severe impact of COVID-19 is targeting the economic impact that fell on low-income and underserved communities. These pre-existing disparities in low-income communities’ verses others, only amplified during the pandemic. We put our focus on diversity and assisting communities that have been disproportionately impacted. The nonprofits/Civic organizations needed assistance due to receiving increased demand for services during the pandemic, along with declines in revenue sources such as donations and fees. Application can be found here.
