Applications are reviewed by the ARC Advisory Council starting on the 15th of each month, with decisions made by end of the month. Organizations not selected are always invited and encouraged to re-apply the following month.

Eligible applicants can be local teachers, sports teams, schools, non-profit organizations, police departments, fire departments, churches, animal rescues, food pantries, and shelters.

“The ARC Gives Back Program was created to give back to the community in an intentional way,” states Brandi Murriell, ARC manager of Outreach Relations. “ARC has been supported by so many in the communities we serve. It is our way of saying “Thank You” to Lawrence County”.

Previous recipients of this mini-grant program have been: Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department, Fallsburg Elementary Music Program, and Fallsburg Elementary Special Education Program.

The Local Advisory Council consists of healthcare employees, local law enforcement, and individuals who live and work in Lawrence County. These members vote monthly to award this gift to someone within Lawrence County.

Applicants can apply or send any questions to the ARC GIVES BACK program via email at
