The City of Snoqualmie has been awarded $1.9 million of ARPA funding through the US Department of the Treasury. The funding received through ARPA must be committed to projects by December 31, 2024, and the funds must be spent by December 31, 2026.
Snoqualmie ARPA Community Grants Program
In October 2021 the City of Snoqualmie put out a request for funding applications to businesses, organizations, and residents to help assess community needs. These applications are currently being reviewed and scored to determine eligibility and compliance with ARPA guidelines. This scoring process also ensures funds will be awarded in a way that is equitable, transparent, and accountable to the community.
As of March 10, 2022, the City of Snoqualmie has earmarked $950,000 of ARPA funding for eligible community projects. The City intends to use these funds to help small businesses, nonprofit organizations, and households recover from the economic impacts of the state shutdown and phased reopening due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded to eligible small businesses and nonprofits in spring/summer of 2022. Additionally, the City intends to contract with local service organizations to provide one-time funding to eligible households that applied.
