Good morning.
Karen Zeman
01:30:42
Can you clarify the part about the state budget? If we receive funding from the state are we not eligible?
Andy Rogers
01:31:14
Are these new rounds of relief tied to applications made through the Credit Union 1 application?
Jennifer
01:31:30
What if we are waiting to hear about the GEERF grant award? Should we still apply in the 1st round?
Laurie Wolf
01:31:34
@Andy- no these are separate funds
btrowbridge
01:32:12
What is the best way to reflect loss of revenue due to canceled programs in the application?
Kari Johnson
01:33:02
If you request funds for unearned income, loss revenue, does that funding need to be spent by Dec. 30 also?
iPhone
01:33:03
can Tribes apply for this funding?
Albert Alvarez
01:33:56
Are salary commitments and expenditures made prior to Dec 30 eligible?
Diana
01:34:16
Should we submit one application for everything? Or should we submit a couple of them next week? We have a new project because of COVID, but other needs/reimbursements as well. All COVID related of course. SO much for one application...which I think is best reflected by using bullet points in application and use of spreadsheets. Space is limited :-)
Emily Groves
01:34:24
Katie, you mentioned ‘unearned’ income. Was that intentional? Does that mean that loss of what would have been ‘earned’ income does not qualify?
Caren
01:34:30
If we have already received funds from the Cares Act - can we apply for this?
Diana
01:34:44
Also...define "Senior" for senior meals.
David Kuiper
01:36:37
What level audit is required?
btrowbridge
01:36:39
If we already do an annual audit can the audit for funds included in this grant be done within the same audit?
Patricia Branson
01:37:16
On the Project budget page, please clarify expenditures since 3/1/2020. From when to 3/1/2020 or which dates?
anne dennis-choi
01:37:28
Can we only apply once? If we are aware of eligible expenses now can we apply in round one and later if new/additional eligible expenses apply for one of the later dates? Or would we be precluded from additional funding? In other words, it is best to wrap everyone into a single proposal?
Ben
01:38:25
What other funding options are available for a smaller non-profit that has already received PPP funding?
jacquieturpin
01:38:25
Audit? Independent, or who is doing the Audit. An independent estimate we have in past is over $20,000
Tara Riemer
01:38:37
Is the audit requirement the Federal Single Audit?
Angie DelMoral
01:39:05
What would you call a "small organization"?
jcummings
01:39:20
Would you give more information about the loss of unearned income?
Robin Sherman -- Sitka Legacy Foundation
01:39:37
Katie, can you provide any more information on how ACF will prioritize applications? I am sure that ACF will receive far more than $35 million in applications. We would like to provide some guidance to local organizations on whether or not it makes sense to apply to this fund. Will ACF target AK Can Do funds to organizations that (1) apply to Coronavirus nonprofit relief fund and do not receive funding, and (2) that decide not to apply to the Coronavirus relief fund?
jacquieturpin
01:44:12
Can projected “Audit” costs be included?
btrowbridge
01:44:21
So when we submit our budget - it should be the one that we were going to operate under for 2020 - not how we have had to adjust due to COVID losses within the past 2 months?
David Kuiper
01:44:51
If the fundraising event, normally scheduled for September, has been cancelled, can we apply for the loss of funding for that event?
Odette Butler
01:45:31
So if you apply for lost revenues from events that go into general fund how can you have that spent by Dec 30th?
Ben
01:48:17
How specific will we have to be when reporting grant spending prior to the December 30 deadline
Odette Butler
01:52:44
I think justifying the COVID connection is the easy part, the hard part will be having it all spent by Dec 30th
jacquieturpin
01:54:02
The audit requirement will eliminate many nonprofits from applying for this. Just cannot afford to add that expense later
Colleen Fitzgerald
01:54:45
If we lost an entire revenue stream due to COVID can we use the grant to pay to keep an employee on board who was charged in part to that revenue stream?
Pamela Kelley
01:54:47
Will you consider requests for less than $25,000?
Colin Tass'aq McDonald
01:56:26
What was the name of this funding opp again?
Robin Sherman -- Sitka Legacy Foundation
01:56:54
Will you AK Can Do prioritize funding organizations that are not a good fit with CNRF?
Olivia Pfeifer
01:58:33
What if we are waiting to hear about GEERF funding?
Angie DelMoral
02:00:22
Can you define what you mean by "smaller businesses"? Do you determine that by budget?
Andy Rogers
02:00:33
can for profit healthcare companies apply for this round?
Ben
02:01:04
Assuming we receive a grant, what will the reporting process look like after Dec. 30th?
Eleanor Oydna
02:01:44
Can you have more than one project under one proposal?
Diana
02:01:54
Silly question...the application allows us very limited space. I assume the best way to get around this is the use of bullet points and our budget sheets? So much and not a lot of space. Ha!
Eleanor Oydna
02:02:32
Can you apply for reimbursement for costs already spent?
Diana
02:02:40
KISS analogy I suppose. We can be more detailed in our reporting?
Thea Lawton
02:03:06
If we received PPP money that ends in early August, can we still apply for this opportunity to cover August through December? I heard "July through September" specifically, but can this still work if PPP funds end in August?
Olivia Pfeifer
02:03:42
Governor's Emergency Education Relief Fund - Funding from CARES
Will Hurr, Boys & Girls Clubs Alaska
02:03:52
That’s education dept. funding, was $1M for all educational related nonprofits.
Will Hurr, Boys & Girls Clubs Alaska
02:03:58
GEERF
Rick Farrell BVCA
02:04:39
So….. it sounds like this is not the grant to go for if you are a small non profit?
sue
02:04:54
Our largest fundraiser is end of December. Do not know if we will be able to hold it. Would the lost income portion cover something like this?
Diana
02:05:12
Thanks! :-)
dcrowson
02:05:34
Because these funds are originally federal they cannot be used as non-federal matching funds for existing federal grants, right? Or does passing them through the State change that in some way?
ACA Group
02:06:19
Will approved funding be at the amount requested or will there be approvals that come back under the amount requested?
Janice Nightingale
02:06:38
For many non-profits next year will be when we will really need funding.
Janice Nightingale
02:07:38
Not going to kick a gift horse
dcrowson
02:08:06
Re: matching - Our organization has existing federal grants that require matching funds that would have been derived through fundraising that is now not occurring. Can these funds be used to match these existing federally funded grants that require non-federal match?
Sara Harriger
02:08:06
These funds are only intended to support organizations that were excluded, did not qualify, or were otherwise unable to obtain funding from U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), or other federal funding programs under the CARES Act, right?
Scott Bartlett (Homer)
02:10:14
Can funding support facility/capital improvements (or initial aspects thereof) to fill voids in programming caused by limited school access i.e. new education program opportunities?
Foraker Group (User 2)
02:10:29
You can also have received money from the state -AK CARES grant and still be eligible.
Sara Harriger
02:10:31
Super basic question #2 in that case - what's the link to the application and information?
Foraker Group (User 2)
02:11:13
https://alaskacf.org/cnrf/
CMR
02:13:15
Is it possible to download the application in pdf form so that we can review it prior to submitting online?
Joy Lyon
02:13:20
Are the funds limited to the non-profit that applies, or can a non profit apply to address a community wide Covid caused need that are approved "buckets" For example, purchasing PPE and distance learning for all child care programs in a community. Or supporting access to child care for working families during reduced school hours.
Foraker Group (User 2)
02:13:23
one questioned we missed - what will reporting look like if you get the grant?
Angie DelMoral
02:14:03
Can you define what you mean by "smaller organizations" who may not want to apply? Is determined by budget?
Laurie Wolf
02:14:54
@Angie yes that is what we mean. does your budget allow for a audit for example
Laurie Wolf
02:15:12
audits are very expensive and could mean that it is not worth it.
Emily Groves
02:15:56
send email to acouvillion@forakergroup.org if you want a Word version of the application to work with (you still need to submit final using the online form)
jlamb
02:16:53
How would you project lost revenues due to decreased encounters for the period August thru December?
Odette Butler
02:16:55
So as long as we can justify that the unearned income was budgeted, we don't have to have it spent by Dec 31st?
Scott Bartlett (Homer)
02:19:38
is there an individual cap for AK can do? next round?
Chris Schapp
02:19:59
