Linn County and the City of Cedar Rapids are now accepting applications for federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds through a joint competitive application process.
The online application is available at www.CR-LinnARPA.org.
Applications for this funding are due by noon on July 15, 2022.
This cooperative effort between Linn County and the City of Cedar Rapids simplifies the process for applicants because they only need to apply once using the joint application. Applications will be accepted from eligible organizations wishing to use this funding for eligible projects or services and submissions will be routed electronically to either the City or Linn County for review. This routing process will be seamless for the applicant.
All applications submitted during Round 1, but not funded, will automatically be moved to the second round for consideration, unless the applicant was previously notified their request was ineligible for funding. Applicants may update and resubmit an application for Round 2 if information in their original application has changed.
Linn County and City staff will review proposals and collaborate on those projects within the City of Cedar Rapids. This will help ensure the most effective use of funds and allows for projects that address the broad scope of community needs.
