ARC Flex-E-Grants for Kentucky’s Distressed Counties

The Flex-E-Grant (FEG) Program was designed by the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC). It provides small investments in short-term projects. It supports projects that:

  • Build community capacity to mobilize local resources
  • Gain leadership experience
  • Strengthen community institutions and networks

Grants are subject to approval for up to $10,000. They must require a 20 percent match of total project costs. Grants must also be completed within a 6-month timeline.

The FEG program was generated from the ARC’s initiative to enhance assistance to distressed counties. Each approved project must demonstrate beneficiaries in a distressed county. Flex-E-Grant funds are made available on a reimbursement basis only.

Applications for the 2017 Flex-E-Grant Cycle are due January 6, 2017.
Awards will be announced during the first quarter of 2017.
