City Accepting Applications from Local Nonprofit Agencies for Coronavirus Relief Funding

The City of Lee’s Summit will begin accepting applications from qualified nonprofit agencies Aug. 27 for Coronavirus Relief Funds. The goal of the Coronavirus Relief Fund is to promote recovery by funding programs and services that support the needs of those impacted by the COVID-19 public health emergency. The deadline to submit an application is 5 p.m. on Sept. 8.

Jackson County was allocated $122.7 million, of which the City received a portion of the funding. The City is allocating approximately $335,000 of its funds to qualified nonprofit agencies in Lee’s Summit. Individuals are not eligible to apply.
