Pinellas County Nonprofit Needs Assessment

Pinellas County Government is seeking your input on the County’s ARPA Nonprofits Capital Projects Grant Program, which was approved by the Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners on January 11, 2022. This $19 million program is funded with the County’s Coronavirus Local Fiscal Recovery Funds through the American Rescue Plan Act and will support the County’s nonprofit community as we recover from the Covid-19 public health emergency. The program’s goal is to help address systemic public health and economic challenges which, for certain populations, have been exacerbated by the pandemic and contributed to the pandemic’s unequal impact.

In support of this goal, the County’s program will enable selected nonprofits to purchase capital assets that have a useful life of greater than five (5) years. Potential eligible capital asset costs may include, but are not limited to:
o   Vehicles
o   Equipment
o   Land
o   Buildings
o   Facility upgrades
o   Refrigerators
o   Solar Panels

The input you provide will help inform the program’s design and supports the County’s efforts to help ensure equity and inclusiveness. The following survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete and you will not be required to provide additional information. The survey will be open through January 26, 2022 at 5:00pm EST.

Pinellas County may contact you directly to seek additional information; however, completing the survey does not obligate you to provide additional information.

Thank you for your time and assistance!
