FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The SCRA grant cycle in response to the COVID-19 pandemic is open from March 25, 2020 through 11:45 p.m. on May 1, 2020. Funding decisions will be shared with all applicants after May 21, 2020. SCRA will only accept grant applications from qualifying organizations that directly serve the residents of Scott County, Iowa and has defined the following two funding priorities:
- Organizations or projects serving populations that were already vulnerable before or are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Organization support due to lost revenue or increased demand for services as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please be aware that our revenue will be significantly less than what we have distributed in previous grant cycles but we are committed to assisting as many organizations as possible with the revenue available during this difficult and unprecedented time. SCRA has also committed $25,000 to the Quad Cities Community Foundation Disaster Recovery Fund to assist with their efforts.
Any non-profit organization exempt from federal income taxes under section 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) of the Internal Revenue Code, government organization, or education institution can apply by completing the online grant application. Applicants must have a local office, a local corporate board of directors, be incorporated in the state of its principal place of business or chartered by the U. S. Government, and serve residents of Scott County, Iowa.
