CLIFTON PARK, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Clifton Park officials have finalized its Community Preparedness and Resiliency Fund awards. The program allocated $200,000 in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding to 41 non-profit organizations.

The town said the organizations were all awarded a share of the $200,000 in funds. Total requests for funding reached $344,000. The largest award is $7,000 and the smallest award is $500.

“We partnered with the Clifton Park IDA and Supervisor Schopf on a grant program to support our businesses and now we are able to assist our crucial non-profit organizations serving people in our community,” said Town Supervisor Phil Barrett. “Unique programs to support all sectors of our town through the pandemic have contributed to Clifton Park remaining a thriving community, working together to benefit all residents.”
