American Rescue Plan
Clark County is expected to receive funding from the federal government as part of the American Rescue Plan.
While guidance is still being gathered from the federal government, preparations are beginning for the best use of this funding.
Here's a summary of allowable uses of fiscal recovery funds:
Public Health Emergency: The money can be used to respond to the COVID-19 public health emergency and its negative economic impacts on the community, including assistance to households, small businesses and non-profit organizations, as well as aid to impacted industries such as tourism, travel and hospitality among others.
Government services: The money can be used to provide government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue (i.e. online, property or income tax) due to the public health emergency relative to revenues collected in the most recent fiscal year of the county prior to the emergency.
Infrastructure: The money can be used to make necessary investments in water, sewer, broadband, stormwater mitigation and some capital improvements.
