Fremont County ARPA Funding Grant Opportunities

Fremont County is excited to announce two grant opportunities for local businesses, nonprofits, and schools that have lost revenue or incurred expenses related to COVID-19. The deadline for both grant opportunities is February 28, 2022. Applications will be reviewed as they come in. Applicants who received CARES Act funding will still be eligible to apply as long as the application is for a different need than what they previously received funding for. Awards will depend upon the number of applicants, availability of funds, and demonstrated need. Once funding decisions are made, applicants will receive a Grant Award notification which will outline all terms and conditions of receiving the grant.

ARPA Grant - Entity Expense Reimbursement Grant Fund This grant is based solely on the reimbursement of expenses.
ARPA Grant - Financial Recovery Grant Funding This grant is based solely on the reimbursement for loss of revenue.
