The deadline is rapidly approaching.

The deadline for municipal governments, organizations and school districts to apply for what may be the final round of American Rescue Plan Act funds.

July 25, 2023, following what the Boone County Commissioners described as a rigorous review process, the Commission announced the recipients of approximately $12 million of funding in the first round of ARPA funding.

According to a Boone County Commission news release, the Commission is currently accepting applications for the final round, for the $6.5 million remainder of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding.

The application deadline for the final round of funding is set for 5 p.m. on Friday, January 26.

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 was signed into law on March 11, 2021. The Act established the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF) program, which provides funding that must be allocated for pandemic rescue and recovery efforts.
