October 4, 2010, Little Rock - Arkansas Coalition for Excellence (ACE) announces the names of 101 Arkansas nonprofit organizations that have been chosen to receive training on leadership, grant writing, financial management and other management topics through the Strengthening Communities Fund program. Recipients were chosen state-wide through an application process. Participants will gather monthly in the region for collaborative training. Thirty of the recipients state-wide---6 per region--will also receive direct technical assistance following the training that is scheduled to last through December 2011.

The workshops are made possible by American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, called the Strengthening Communities Fund. Arkansas Coalition for Excellence (ACE) received a $250,000 grant from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to help nonprofits across Arkansas with economic recovery efforts in their communities. ACE is the state designee for this grant, through the Governor's Office.

"We congratulate all nonprofit organizations, board members and staff who are a part of this important program for their commitment to strengthening their communities, region and state through a commitment to nonprofit excellence," said Hunter Phillips Goodman, Executive Director of Arkansas Coalition for Excellence.

More information, including a list of all nonprofits in additional regions of Arkansas, is also available at the ACE website www.AceNonprofit.org.
