Anne Arundel County State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds Guidance
- CREATE ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL - Confront the causes of poverty, including wages, housing, transportation, childcare, education, and institutional racism.
- PROMOTE HEALTH AND WELLNESS - Prioritize government investment in programs and infrastructure that enhance public health and thereby improve quality of life.
- Support public health response: Fund COVID-19 mitigation efforts, medical expenses, behavioral health care and certain county public health, public safety, human services and other related staff
- Address negative economic impacts: Respond to economic harms to workers, families, small businesses, impacted industries and rehiring of public sector workers
- Replace public sector revenue loss: Use funds to provide government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue experienced during the pandemic (We are awaiting further clarity from US Treasury on this category)
- Water, sewer and broadband infrastructure: Make necessary investments to improve access to clean drinking water, invest in water, wastewater and stormwater infrastructure and provide unserved or underserved locations with new or expanded broadband access
Community engagement is the foundation of the ARPA funding strategy. The County's initial community input survey is now closed. The feedback obtained from this survey will be used to further define the needs and will be shared in public forums in the coming months.
Coming Soon: A portal will be made available allowing the submission of abstracts for project/program ideas by the community.
Please note that Anne Arundel County Public Schools will receive a separate allocation, which is not included in the survey or Anne Arundel County government survey.
