About this event
The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) introduces a vast amount of new federal funding for Northwest communities. This economic relief package, passed by Congress in March 2021, provides direct economic impact payments to individuals, relief for employers and also designates funding for health, education, cultural programs, housing, broadband and other key services. $350 billion is being passed to state, local, tribal and territorial governments to invest in recovery efforts.
Join us for a conversation with Northwest nonprofit association leaders about the implications of ARPA for nonprofits. This is a critical moment to hear from our partners as we consider the role philanthropy can play as an intermediary, funder, advocate and coordinator to ensure the equitable distribution of resources and the greatest impact for our communities.
