American Rescue Plan – State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds

The Alachua County Board of County Commissioners (ABoCC) allocated American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) – State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) in June 2021 to address the impact and recovery of the COVID-19 pandemic and address opportunities needed to prepare for future such events in alignment with U.S. Treasury Rules. The $52.25 Million received by the County has been allocated:

  • $5 Million Support Public Health Response
  • $7 Million Address Negative Economic Impacts
  • $15 Million Broadband Infrastructur​e
  • $1.25 Million Water Infrastructure
  • $15 Million Replace Public Sector Revenue Loss
  • $9 Million under review

As of July 31, 2021, no funds have been expended as various departments build plans, evidence based as required, that meet the goals outlined by the Board. Each project will have a distinct Recovery Plan as they are adopted by the ABoCC. The next report is due January 31, 2022 and will be added to this page when complete.

The major challenge is the rapid spread of the Omicron variant which requires constant adjustments to the County’s response to help limit impact before recovery can really move forward.

Citizen Vaccination Project
