American Rescue Plan Act Application

ARPA Background

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 opened a public application for local organizations to submit proposals for ARPA funding. To have been considered for funding, proposals must have demonstrated they were an allowable use under ARPA guidance. Please review ARPA guidance documents below for more details on what is allowable.

The first round of Forsyth County applications closed August 27, 2021 at 5pm.
