Our partners at the Iowa Economic Development Authority along with Volunteer Iowa have announced the Iowa Nonprofit Recovery Fund, an extension of the Iowa Small Business Relief Grant Program. The program will provide short-term relief to nonprofit organizations that have seen reduced revenue and/or increased costs due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Eligible nonprofits may be awarded up to $25,000.
In response to the August 10 derecho and resulting widespread loss of power and internet access, the Nonprofit Recovery Fund will now remain open and continue to accept applications until funds are exhausted. Eligibility criteria has also been expanded beyond the priority service populations, so all nonprofit organizations experiencing COVID related hardships are encouraged to begin the application process to see if they qualify.

They will be awarded on a first-come, first-ready-to-process basis.
