Nonprofits eligible for funds


Gov. Andy Beshear announced a $75 million fund to help Kentucky’s nonprofit organizations recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Team Kentucky Nonprofit Assistance Fund will provide one-time direct relief payments, up to $100,000 per eligible nonprofit organization.

“Kentuckians rely on our 20,000-plus nonprofits, each with a unique mission. They provide families with assistance, advocacy and aid during our hardest times, in addition to fostering education and culture through the arts,” Gov. Beshear said. “During the pandemic, nonprofits faced a variety of challenges, and many continue to struggle. With this relief, we can help these crucial organizations continue to help the communities they serve.”

The Kentucky Nonprofit Network has information to assist nonprofits in the application process and other technical information posted on its website at

The Team Kentucky Nonprofit Assistance Fund is funded by federal American Rescue Plan Act dollars and Gov. Beshear supported the allocation by the 2022 General Assembly.

To be eligible, organizations must be based in Kentucky, in active operation, remain active for the entirety of calendar year 2022 and have experienced net negative revenue between calendar years 2020 and 2021.

The Public Protection Cabinet is administering the program and is accepting online applications. The online application portal will close at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 1.
