20 Pinal County nonprofits to receive up to $80,000 for COVID-19 relief

Posted

Nonprofit organizations in Pinal County will receive $6,410 to $80,000 in Community Development Block Grant funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. Uses for the funds include purchasing two vans to deliver food to senior citizens, buying personal protective equipment and providing child care services.

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors recently approved sub-recipient agreements with 20 agencies to receive a total of $563,521 in CDBG funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The funding must be used to complete a public service activity that will prevent, prepare for or respond to coronavirus between October 2020 and September 2021.

Each sub-recipient certifies the services being offered are a new or a quantifiable increase in services being provided as a result of COVID-19, according to the agreements.

“Furthermore, the sub-recipient certifies the request for funding is not a duplication of financial assistance received or reasonably expected to be received from another entity,” they state.

Organizations approved to receive the funds are primarily in Pinal County’s five board of supervisor districts, with some from Pima and Maricopa counties.
