In partnership with Arapahoe County, Centennial’s City Council has directed $1.5 Million of City CARES funding to be used to support two new grants. The Residential Care Settings and Nonprofit Service CARES grants each have $750,000 allocated to support our community. These two new grant opportunities are now available.

The Centennial Cares: Nonprofit Services Grants are intended to help 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations that provide services to Centennial residents in response to COVID-19. Nonprofit organizations do not need to have a physical address in the City so long as they are serving City residents. A maximum of $50,000 can be awarded per eligible organization. Nonprofit organizations that fully utilize $50,000 in grant funding prior to November 1, 2020 may at the City's discretion be considered for additional funding if able to demonstrate there is still a significant demand for services.

The Centennial Cares: Residential Care Setting Grants are intended to help Residential Care Settings (Nursing Homes, Assisted Living, Group Homes, and Intermediate Care Facilities) serving those at high risk for COVID-19 within the City of Centennial. Residential Care Setting Grants will be provided to eligible applicants for expenses incurred or planned to facilitate compliance with public health orders. A maximum of $1,000/Certified bed, up to a maximum of $30,000, can be awarded per eligible organization.

Grant applications are now available and will be reviewed in the order received.

Throughout these last five months, our community has experienced unpredictable and challenging situations and continues to do so. The City is pleased to assist our nonprofit organizations and those that are high risk by providing two new grant opportunities. Nonprofits assisting Centennial residents along with nursing homes, assisted living, group homes and intermediate care facilities have been hard hit by COVID-19 and the City looks forward to providing support to those that need it most,” says Centennial Mayor Stephanie Piko.
