ARC Flex-E-Grants for Kentucky’s Distressed Counties
The Flex-E-Grant (FEG) Program, designed by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), provides small investments in short-term projects that build community capacity to mobilize local resources, gain leadership experience, and strengthen community institutions and networks.
Grants are subject to approval for up to $8,000, require a 20 percent match of total project costs, and are to be completed within a 6-month timeline.
The FEG program was generated from the ARC’s initiative to enhance assistance to distressed counties, and each approved project must demonstrate beneficiaries in a distressed county. Flex-E-Grant funds are made available on a reimbursement basis only.
Requests for proposals for the next open cycle of funding will be available in May 2014.
