American Rescue Plan Act Funding Application


The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was signed into law on March 11, 2021, and provides $350 billion for eligible state, local, territorial, and Tribal governments to meet pandemic response needs and rebuild a stronger, more equitable economy as the country recovers. Forsyth County was awarded approximately $74 million in ARPA funds of which approximately $56 million is yet to be allocated.

The County has opened a public application for local organizations to submit proposals for ARPA funding. Interested parties may access the application by clicking on the link below and registering with the County's Neighborly Software site. Once registered you can create and submit a new funding application.

To be considered for funding, proposals must demonstrate they are an allowable use under ARPA guidance. Please review ARPA guidance documents below for more details on what is allowable.

Applications for this round of funding will be accepted until 5pm on August 27th. Eligible proposals will be reviewed by staff and presented to the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners in September/October for funding consideration.

County staff will be holding a series of virtual meetings to discuss the funding and application process.

La Ley del Plan de Rescate Estadounidense (ARPA*) se convirtió en ley el 11 de marzo del 2021 y proporciona $ 350 mil millones a los gobiernos estatales, locales, territoriales y tribales que son elegibles para satisfacer las necesidades de respuesta a una pandemia y reconstruir una economía más fuerte y equitativa a medida que el país se recupera. El Condado de Forsyth recibió aproximadamente $ 74 millones en fondos ARPA, de los cuales aproximadamente $ 56 millones aún no se han asignado.

El Condado está buscando opiniones públicas sobre cómo los ciudadanos del condado de Forsyth quisieran que se utilicen los fondos. Los comisionados del condado utilizarán esta guía para determinar el financiamiento después de revisar las solicitudes a fines del verano / principios del otoño de 2021. El proceso de solicitud inicial está programado para comenzar a mediados de julio y continuar hasta fines de agosto. Se prevé que habrá varios períodos de solicitud y que no todos los fondos se asignarán este otoño.

La tesorería de los Estados Unidos ha proveído una guía provisional de como se pueden utilizar los fondos ARPA. Haga clic en los enlaces a continuación para revisar la guía.
