Coffee Q&A for the ARC program Kicks Off

OVRDC to Host an Online ARC Educational “Coffee Q&A”

On Wednesday, February 14, 2024, OVRDC will kick off an informational online office hours meeting to discuss the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC) program, with information on opportunities and how to apply.

Join Kerri Richardson, OVRDC Development Specialist, and other team members for online office hours in a morning coffee Q&A to answer your questions and explain what ARC funding programs are available for your projects, how our office can help people with applying, who is eligible and the different project types.

The series of ARC office hours meetings will happen every Wednesday morning, from 9:30 am – 10:00 am for the next four weeks. Sign up for any of the meetings or all of them as a weekly time to check in and get your questions answered. Register online and get the answers you need to successfully submit your project for the ARC program.

We have recently added content to our ARC information page on the OVRDC website. Please fill out a separate Letter of Intent (LOI) for each project you plan to submit for ARC funding. The deadline to submit your LOI is March 1, 2024. It is encouraged to send in your completed LOI’s as soon as possible, so that we at OVRDC have time to review your project and make suggestions.

Reminder: The deadline to submit your LOI is March 1, 2024. The letter of intent is also awarded bonus points on the final scoring of your submitted pre-applications (10 bonus points).

Please visit for the Letter of Intent form, download it, fill it out and submit back to
