Dec 8, 2021. BCD. Objectives set for how first round of relief funding will be spent, commissioners to discuss requests this week by Suzannah Couch
Earlier this year it was announced that Brown County would receive nearly $3 million in relief funding from the American Rescue Plan Act to help with the local response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The amount the county is getting through the ARP is almost six times more than the $494,248 the county received in CARES Act funding last year. The ARPA money will be split into two payments. The county received its first payment this summer, totalling around $1.4 million.
Before administering any of the ARPA money, the Brown County Commissioners planned to set up objectives for how to distribute the money.
At the Nov. 17 meeting, Commissioner Diana Biddle announced the objectives for the first round of funding would be to provide funding for projects that “develop and advance essential infrastructure improvements.”
