Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, IHEs, government agencies, tribes, and development districts to strengthen the economy and expand job opportunities in eligible regions. Applicants must submit a letter of intent and contact the Funding Source prior to submitting a full application.

ARC serves a 205,000-square-mile region of 25 million people that includes all of West Virginia and parts of twelve other states: Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia.
