Franklin County Government was recently awarded fundingunder the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) to promote the continued resurgence of our community. The purpose of ARPA funding is to address a public need that has been created or exaggerated by the COVID-19 pandemic and meets the usage and timing requirements of the ARPA legislation. City and County governments have been given discretion to use the funding in the way they best believe addressees he issues of their specific community.

It is the desire of Franklin County to ensure that this one-time relief is used responsibly and equitably to ensure that the greatestnumber of residents are benefited. In an effort to further this community goal and address the greatest community need, the Franklin County Board is inviting County Departments, Child Care Providers, Non-Profit Organizations, Local Businesses and Other outside organizations to submit proposals for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding consideration.
