Lake Havasu City launched a Community Resource Program that injects up to one million dollars in ARPA allocation for non-profits and public service organizations. This program is to support local organizations in the areas of food, housing, medical services, agency services, childcare, senior adult care, senior services, or other social services.
City Council established the Lake Havasu City Community Resource Coalition (Coalition) to develop a community resources request and evaluation process to evaluate funding requests received and to recommend beneficiaries of funding distributions to the City Council.
Successful proposals should provide long-term investments and be transparent and equitable. Projects should align with Council’s ARPA priorities and improve community health readiness, address negative economic impacts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, aid the populations hit hardest by the crisis, and assist the community in responding and rebuilding a stronger, more equitable economy as the community recovers.
Eligible organizations can still apply for the funding. The funding application package can be downloaded by clicking on the following link: https://www.lhcaz.gov/community-resource-coalition.
The Coalition will review program applications with special emphasis given to projects that have a direct/specific benefit to Lake Havasu City and its residents. The deadline to apply is December 9, 2022, by 5:00 p.m.
