Funding opportunities in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and the Serve America Act


Two recent laws, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“ARRA,” commonly known as the stimulus package) and the Edward M. Kennedy Serve America Act, provide funding opportunities for nonprofits and social entrepreneurs to expand their services and accommodate additional volunteers. Organizations can apply for ARRA funds immediately. While funding for the Serve America Act will depend upon the 2010 federal budget, organizations may wish to assess their needs now in anticipation of the Act going into effect on October 1, 2009.
