Community Foundation of the Lowcountry Announces July 22 Application Deadline and Guidelines for Third Round of Hilton Head Island ARPA/SLFRF COVID-19 Fund Grants

July 15, 2022

Community Foundation of the Lowcountry will distribute a third round of grants from the Hilton Head Island ARPA/SLFRF COVID-19 Fund that was established by the Town of Hilton Head Island with $1 million it received through the federal government’s American Rescue Plan Act. To date, approximately $500,000 has been awarded to local nonprofits.

Nonprofits eligible to apply for a grant include 501(c)(3) organizations providing services to low- and moderate-income citizens of Hilton Head Island. Organizations must be able to verify the income level of program recipients.

The application deadline is July 22. An advisory committee consisting of community leaders and representatives from the Town of Hilton Head Island and the Community Foundation will review grant applications and determine grant awards. Final decisions will be made in mid-August.

All grant distributions will comply with federal guidelines and address negative economic impacts caused by COVID-19, including healthcare, housing assistance, childcare, education, rent and utility assistance, and food insecurity. The maximum amount per grant is $50,000.

Grant guidelines and a link to the grant application can be found at Community Foundation of the Lowcountry’s website:
