Mayor Scott Announces the First Round of Recovery Office Awards to Nonprofits
Today, Mayor Brandon M. Scott announced the first round of American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) grant awards from the Mayor’s Office of Recovery Programs to nonprofit organizations. The awards – totaling $7.3 million – span the Scott Administration's priority pillars outlined in the Mayor’s Action Plan, including building public safety, equitable neighborhood development, prioritizing our youth, and clean and healthy communities.
The grant funding announced today increases the total amount of funding awarded to nonprofit organizations to over $25 million from the City’s $641 million ARPA allocation. City and quasi-government agencies that have already made ARPA awards to nonprofits for either direct economic relief or specific initiatives include: the Baltimore Civic Fund, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Safety and Engagement, and the Baltimore City Health Department. In addition to ARPA, the City of Baltimore has provided support to nonprofits through other federal funding sources meant to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency, such as the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.
