The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) announced the launch of READY Appalachia, a community capacity-building initiative offering flexible funding to Appalachian nonprofit organizations, community foundations, local governments, and Local Development Districts (LDDs), and free cohort-based learning and hands-on training to the Appalachians who work for them. Eligible participants can apply for one of READY Appalachia’s 10-week learning tracks, the first being READY Nonprofits, which is now accepting applications until August 19. This initiative is part of ARC’s larger investment priority of building community leaders and local capacity to effect long-lasting economic change, and is supported by funding through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.
Each of READY Appalachia’s learning tracks will help participating organizations hone skills, refine organizational operations, develop additional expertise, leverage unprecedented federal investment opportunities, access other financial resources, and generate innovative project ideas to address community issues. Upon completion, participating organizations can apply for match-free grants to scale and adapt existing work, launch ideas conceptualized during their learning track, and attract additional investment to fuel economic growth.
The Center for Community Leadership and Nonprofit Excellence is an initiative of the Scranton Area Community Foundation.
