The Center for Rural Development, a nonprofit organization located in Somerset, is accepting grant applications from city and county governments and eligible nonprofit organizations in Letcher County for the next round of federally funded Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) mini-grants to help advance strategic planning efforts throughout the region.
Grant applications will be accepted through Nov. 15. Grants range from $5,000 to a maximum of $10,000 and are scheduled to be awarded in March.
The ARC mini-grants, awarded through The Center’s Developing and Implementing Community Strategies Program, may be used for either the successful creation of a strategic plan or the implementation of prior- ity community development projects identified in existing strategic plans.
For more information, contact Patti Simpson at 606-677-6000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

All projects must be completed within six months after the grant announcement and require a local cash match of 20 percent of the total project cost.
