ARPA Initiatives and Reporting

The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) was passed by Congress in March 2021 to respond to the COVID-19 emergency, address its economic fallout, and support a strong and equitable recovery. ARPA provided for a variety of funding opportunities, including State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (FRF) to help governments recover from the pandemic. It is the policy of the Tarrant County Commissioners Court to promote the highest and best use of funds received through ARPA by leveraging existing resources and prioritizing programs without an alternate source of funding.
