About this Event
Get grounded in the basics of finding information about LA County funding opportunities, determining fit for your organization and strategies to help you plan for pursuing contracts and funds.
Join us to learn about the Equitable Recovery Initiative, a project to support community-based organizations in strengthening their infrastructure to apply for and manage federal funds to support recovery in LA County.
This session is co-sponsored by the County of Los Angeles Anti-Racism, Diversity and Inclusion Initiative. LA County staff will join us to provide valuable information on upcoming projects, available funding, and steps your organization can take to prepare to apply.
The Center for Nonprofit Management (CNM) and its partner BDO FMA are ready to assist organizations in accessing, applying for, and managing current and upcoming American Rescue Plan (ARP) funding opportunities to serve LA County communities most impacted by COVID. We are especially looking to engage BIPOC-led and BIPOC-serving organizations operating under a budget of $2.5M in this effort to ensure equitable access to funding.
In this session, you’ll learn about:
- ARP funding and how this differs from other public funds
- Navigating the process to contract with the County
- Approved projects and upcoming contract opportunities
Who Should Attend:
Senior leaders of LA County nonprofit organizations looking to learning more about current ARP contracting opportunities. This event is open to staff of nonprofit organizations looking to serve LA County communities most impacted by the pandemic.
