American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was passed in 2021 to help the country recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.  This resulted in an infusion of funds to cities and counties across the country.

Shasta County has been allocated $34.9 million to invest locally.  This money has the potential to have significant impact on our community for years to come.

This money is able to be used in a variety of ways within the ARPA guidelines. 

The Shasta County Board of Supervisors has identified several focus areas and will meet in May 2022 to finalize a spending plan. The County is committed to seeking community input on the use of these funds.
