South Carolina's state and local governments are set to receive over $4 billion from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) passed in March.

Among other eligible uses, governments can use these funds to support nonprofits impacted by COVID-19.

Join us for a deep dive into the American Rescue Plan's State and Local Funding provisions, and how nonprofits can position themselves for support in their communities, and what Together SC is doing at the state level.
