Community Grants

Plumas County is excited to announce the Community Grants Program is now available. The U.S. Department of the Treasury has continued its programs to assist State, Local, and Tribal Governments through the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF). $350 billion were made available through the American Rescue Plan Act to state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments. Plumas County has allocated $540,000 of its federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to support small businesses facing negative economic impacts from the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Plumas County will provide grants up to $10,000 to for-profit and non-profit entities with 25 or fewer employees based in Plumas County; $270,000 will be allocated to for-profit businesses and $270,00 will be allocated to non-profit organizations. Public entities are not eligible for this funding opportunity. All grantees are expected to follow ARPA program requirements (found here) and provide regular reporting. The report will depend on the types of activities funded. Once awarded, a report worksheet will be provided. 

Grant funds under this program will be available until the deadline of April 30, 2023. Interested businesses must submit an application to be considered for this opportunity. The County of Plumas is committed to effective, efficient, and transparent management of ARPA funds.

A complete overview of the program is available in the application. After going through the application, if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Zachary Gately at or 530-283-6414.
