American Rescue Plan Act

On March 11, 2021, the American Resue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into law. Placer County is expected to receive a direct allocation of $77,370,739 under ARPA’s Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (Fiscal Recovery Fund). 

The intention of the Fiscal Recovery Funds is to build on and expand support for the COVID-19 public health emergency provided previously through the CARES Act. The Fiscal Recovery Fund will provide aid to state, local, territorial, and tribal governments to help turn the tide on the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.

 Eligible uses of Fiscal Recovery Funds include:

  • Response to public health emergency / negative economic impacts
  • Revenue loss
  • Premium pay
  • Water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure

On July 21, 2021, the Placer County Board of Supervisors held a workshop on a plan for the distribution of Fiscal Recovery Funds. 

Based on public comment and board direction, the focus will be on  the following eligible use categories:

  • Respond to the public health emergency and address its negative economic effects
  • Replace lost public sector revenue
  • Invest in water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure
