Forgive me if this was already covered as I had to be a bit late. Is there a way to know if our first application (before the do-over) had problems, or were all applications rejected?

Do have to have received the first round to apply for the second round?
To clarify: My org makes meals for those in need. Can we ask for a grant to pay for these meals and then give them to partner organizations to distribute them? If some of our partner organizations also directly apply for the grant, can we then use our grant to distribute to organizations who did not receive their own grant?
@ Christie, my question is very similar to yours...
Can you return to the application or do you need to complete it all at once?
Organizations that had issues with their accounting were they notified.

On the prior seminar, labor costs for actually preparing food was defined as an administrative cost. That would seem to be a direct cost, not an administrative cost. Is the direct labor a direct cost or administrative cost?
No money is being passed along
For Clarity, No Mortgage assistance. Is that right
If you want to provide your service in a City that meets the poverty requirement but the County does not. How can we show or select that the city meet those requirements?
Write it all out in Word before you start!
How do we provide services to business that were affected by Covid. Do we make checks payable to those businesses
can you make clear on the budget form when you have utility assistance that you are paying for. Some past due bills may be $900, other $700. There are varied amounts. How does your budget articulate the amounts when you don't know the amount. Do you say $4000 will go to Entergy? $2,000 goes to X Utility Company. The same is true for mortgage assistance. Mortgage amounts are varied.
To be clear, as a home delivered meals and transportation provider to senior citizens, we can apply for funding based on those services alone?
You indicated that there are six priority services. The section of the guidance lists those items starting with Mortgage Assistance. Is the list in the guidance in priority order? For example, is mortgage assistance more important than clothing.
Are proposals considered on a first come first serve basis or will they be considered all at once?
Save your info in word then copy and paste. That is the best thing to do if you get happen to get out of your computer
So can the grantee use a restaurant as a vendor. And pay the restaurant for those meals we set up for clients to receive?
We work with local store that will provide us with vouchers specifically for use on clothing purchases. Would this be appropriate as clothing assistance (not considered a gift card)?
We have raised hands...too much to type
What if account and routing number is the same only bank name changed?
My organization is an nonprofit. Are we providing our tax id and a w9 or not?? Thank you
So we can pay that Mortage to the bank if that business has it through the bank
this is Rhonda and im using Monte computer. What type of clothing assistance is allowed. How does that work
Are we allowed to assist with partial mortgage payments?
This is Pam Bax from Brandon House. Still would like clarity on the budget question asked above related to the budget. For food, we take the family shopping. How do you budget when you do not know what will be spent. For example for a family of 4, are we budgeting so much in funds for eggs, so much funding for milk? Just need clarity on the budget rather than saying $8500 spent on food, how do you wish us to show the budget.
From my understanding just so I am clear you can not pay for a integrity to provide a service the organization should be the one providing the service directly to the community.
I serve four different counties. Do I submit a separate application for each county or just add a proposal. I wasn’t sure after reading the last information sent out. Please clarify.
I didn't see the budget form on the website under round 2. can you show it on the screen and tell where it is. Thanks
Is there a specific operating budget that organizations have to fall below or be above in order to qualify for this grant?
When helping with utilities do we need something from the clients to verify that they were affected by Covid?
Can you pay someone to provide the services for the youth?
Do we have to sign the voided check before we submit the application?
For documentation purposes, if you were provided a route sheet for meals and sign in sheets for transportation, would that suffice? (less client address info)
If you provide meals to people do we have to collect the names of those recieving the meals
When helping with funeral assistance can you help outside of Pulaski County under the same grant
Wait what? Can we go back to the name of people receiving meals thing?
My partner orgs do not collect names of the people they serve when distributing food
Got it, we can work with it
can you explain the clothing assistance. I missed that part
Thank you, and I'm sure I'll have plenty of other questions.
Y’all go home and get some rest, ha
Dr Laverne Hampton
Thank you good information
Gala C Tallent
Thank you both!
Thank you so very much for your support Keesa & Ruthie.
Last question is this reimbursement or will funds be directly deposited?
Thank you both so much for your help and all that you do!! Blessings to you both
Thank you so much!
Again, Thank you!
Thank you Keesa and Ruthie for this information
Thank you for allowing organizations to apply for this funding. Even though we are an arts organization, we see our families who have such a need for these direct services. Pam Bax
