Awardees for the Community CARES Healthy Places Grant have been selected and announced.
In August, awardees should receive an email from AmpliFund, the grant application portal, reconfirming approval of their application. They will receive the payment in August. It will be deposited in the account listed in their application.
As more precise timing of payments becomes known, this page will be updated with additional information.
Currently planned reporting for Healthy Places Grant awardees is minimal. Awardees can expect to receive a survey on their activities related to the funding later in the year. However, because awardees are sub-recipients of a federal grant, standard federal grant rules and regulations apply. View detailed compliance requirements.
Awardees are advised to document how their Healthy Places Grant funding is used, maintaining books, records and receipts which can be easily accessed should an auditor request to see them in the future. All expenditures should meet federal regulations, as described at 2 CFR 200. Additionally, awardees should document in narrative form the impact the funding has on their organization. In the detailed compliance requirements, see especially item 4 on page 1 for prohibited activities.
Nebraska licensed child care providers or centers, Nebraska license-exempt subsidy child care providers, and centers of worship in Nebraska, tax-exempt under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, are eligible to apply.
The State of Nebraska will be providing transparent reporting on the CARES Act funds and names of recipients will be made public.
Child care providers and centers of worship must use the Healthy Places Grant to purchase personal protective equipment, such as masks and gloves, and cleaning supplies recommended for mitigating the spread of COVID-19. Funds will be distributed as one-time payments.
The Application Period is now CLOSED.
