American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)

The American Rescue Plan Act became law in March 2021. It provides relief from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic by allocating money to assist governments in creating new programs and supporting existing programs that address the problems brought on by COVID.

Sherburne County was allotted $18.5 million to assist its community in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts.

Allowable uses for the money include:

  • Support Public Health Response
  • Replace Public Sector Revenue Loss
  • Water and Sewer Infrastructure
  • Address Negative Economic Impacts
  • Premium Pay for Essential Workers
  • Broadband Infrastructure

All funds received by Sherburne County must be either spent or obligated by Dec. 31, 2024. Obligated funds must be spent by Dec. 31, 2026. 

ARPA has created a variety of new programs and supplements to existing programs. To learn more about those programs, visit the U.S. Department of Treasury here.
