    Dallas County will begin accepting requests for American Rescue Plan (ARP) 2021 funding allotments for Non-Profit Organization entities through The Dallas County American Rescue Plan Non-Profit Proposal Portal. President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) of 2021 into law on March 11, 2021. This $1.9 trillion package, based on President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, including the public health and economic impacts being experienced. ARP funding has allocated usages such as harboring public health and vaccine access, assistance for vulnerable populations, education and housing stabilization, economic recovery assistance, and direct assistance for families and individuals.

    As part of the $362 billion in federal fiscal recovery aid for state and local governments, Dallas County received $511,918,088 in direct aid. The ARP funds are intended to provide support to Dallas County areas and members in responding to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. As Dallas County recognizes the negative impacts communities have experienced during the pandemic, individuals and families in need must be able to gain equitable access to these aid allotments.

    Therefore, while programs are being developed and funding under ARP is being allocated for use for the next fiscal year, Non-profit organizations may submit preliminary funding requests to Dallas County to support organization efforts and operations as allowed under ARP guidance and use of funds protocols. These submissions will be overviewed by Dallas County to effectively plan the distribution of ARP funds to ensure optimum equity, efficiency, and appropriate use of aid. The completion of the funding request portal does not guarantee ARP aid for any given Non-profit organization entity, and further aid approval guidelines will be directed at a later time.
