American Rescue Plan Responsive Grants

The Next Phase of Community Recovery

The Kalamazoo Community Foundation and United Way of the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo Region have distributed all of the Community Urgent Relief and Disaster Relief dollars currently available.

As a result, we are not currently accepting applications for the relief funds. We will post updates on this site should additional relief funding become available and the application reopened.

The Kalamazoo City Commission approved a $1.1 million distribution to the United Way’s Disaster Relief Fund in American Rescue Plan Act dollars.

KZCF and UWBCKR will support and aid in the distribution of ARPA dollars in collaboration with the City of Kalamazoo to address the impacts of the pandemic.
