Riverside County Nonprofit Assistance Fund
The Inland Empire Community Foundation (IECF), on behalf of the Riverside County Department of Housing and Workforce Solutions (HWS), is seeking proposals for Programmatic Funding through the Riverside County Nonprofit Assistance Fund (RCNAF).
The RCNAF was established by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors to provide grants to eligible nonprofit agencies, specifically and in accordance with the Coronavirus State & Local Fiscal Recovery Funds Final Rule, those that are 501 (c)(3) or 501 (c)(19) tax-exempt organizations, and which have suffered a negative financial impact related to the COVID-19 pandemic within Riverside County. The Fund was established to build on the County’s efforts to strengthen, expand, and support the local nonprofit sector which has played a critical role in the pandemic response. This work was initiated with Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) funding in 2020-2021, in the form of small grants to support financially impacted nonprofits. This assistance, funded through the American Recovery Plan Act (ARPA), will develop long-term strategies focused on impact, sustainability, and building economic and community resiliency.
