ARPA Workforce & Small Business/Entrepreneurial Development Grants

​​The COVID-19 public health emergency resulted in significant economic hardships for many Americans. To help alleviate the economic hardships caused by the pandemic the City of Wichita invites grant applications from organizations interested in implementing (1) Workforce Development and/or (2) Small Business/Entrepreneurial Development through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

The City of Wichita has allocated up to $10 million for this purpose.

While the pandemic has affected communities across the country, it has disproportionately impacted low-income and minority communities, as well as, specific industries. Examples of these specific industries include, but are not limited to:

  • Advanced Manufacturing​
  • Aerospace​
  • Agriculture​
  • Other Service Industries​
  • Entertainment and Leisure (includes food establishments)
  • Healthcare​
  • Transportation and Logistics​

As such, preference will be given to grant applications that are tailored to address such inequities. ARPA Funding may not be used unless a negative economic impact from the public health emergency (COVID-19) has been experienced.
