The Blaine City Council took action to use more than $1 million of federal CARES Act funding to provide grants to Blaine small businesses and nonprofits that have been impacted by the pandemic. These grants were awarded in fall 2020. If the city receives a new round of federal or state funding for pandemic relief in 2021 a similar program could be offered.
The National Sports Center and Fogerty Arena are two major community assets in Blaine and both have been hit very hard by the COVID-19 pandemic. The city was able to provide a larger grant to both Fogerty and the NSC but the pandemic related problems still persist for both organizations. Fogerty and the National Sports Center are both seeking community support to keep operations going into the future.
For the National Sports Center you can, text NSCPLAY to 91999 to make a donation or visit NSCPlay.NSCSports.org.
Those who are interested in helping Fogerty Arena can visit FogertyArena.com for more details on their fundraising efforts.
