The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) designated $350 billion nationwide to support immediate pandemic response, address economic fallout and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.
The County utilized ARPA funds received to cover lost revenue per the ARPA calculation and pay for general government service to maintain the level of services at pre-pandemic levels. This in turn has allowed the county to utilize local dollars to address issues facing the county and support and fund projects across the county.
The County's dashboard reflects the use of ARPA funds for lost revenue to maintain County services at pre-pandemic levels. The County is sharing information on local funds provided to projects throughout the county with legacy impacts.
