FRANKFORT, Ky. (FOX 56) – Nonprofit leaders from across Kentucky came to the Capitol to celebrate the work that’s been done, and the support they’ve received.
The Capitol rotunda was filled with cheers as nonprofit leaders celebrated the support, they’ve received in the form of the $75 million appropriation.
The Kentucky General Assembly appropriated these funds of the state fiscal recovery fund of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 to establish a grant program to provide relief in the 2022-2023 budget.
Speakers included the Kentucky Nonprofit Network executive director and CEO Danielle Clore, Lt. Gov. Jacqueline Coleman, and Sen. David Givens just to name a few. They all spoke very highly of the work done by nonprofits and encouraged these organizations to keep pressing on.
“Every time you hold up the sign, every time you cheer, every time you celebrate, you’re celebrating success that you are vitally, vitally important to achieving. So I encourage you to continue the path. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for the work you do in our communities, meeting the needs of so many of our citizens in so many different ways,” Givens said.
