“Our local nonprofit organizations provide crucial services to Kingston residents, and the organizations that are being awarded these ARPA grants represent a wide array of supportive programs – from providing food to legal counsel, from housing efforts to youth programming,” said mayor Steve Noble. “Kingston is so fortunate to have such incredible nonprofit organizations that provided invaluable services before and during the pandemic. They remain vital to the health of our community. We are pleased to be able to support these nonprofits, with the hope that this grant funding will help them continue their services well into the future.”The City of Kingston is awarding over a million dollars of its American Rescue Plan Act funding with the program. Qualifying organizations had to be a nonprofit or not-for-profit entity within City of Kingston limits or provide services to city residents.
