American Rescue Plan Act
Madison County has been awarded a grant of over $25 Million through the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. The funds present a significant opportunity for Madison County to (i) Continue its response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its secondary effects; (ii) Invest in initiatives that support a strong economic recovery, and (iii) Strengthen County fiscal stability by reducing demand for taxpayer dollars to fund existing initiatives or priorities. Information about the American Rescue Plan Act, or ARPA, can be found on the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Website.
Madison County has proposed updating the ARPA Funding Allocation and Community Engagement Plan to facilitate the implementation of this program. The following draft plan has been presented for review: Madison County ARPA Allocation and Engagement Plan.
The initial round of APRA appropriations were received in 2022. A summary of the projects is included here:
