Are American Rescue Plan Dollars in Your Nonprofit Wallet?

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides an unprecedented opportunity for local nonprofits to access much-needed federal funds. The ARP funds that run through state and local governments can be confusingly complex, leaving nonprofits wondering what monies are available for whom, for what, and how they can be accessed. This session, led by national experts on the American Rescue Plan, will clarify these and other questions that you may have.
