Napa County Offers Workshops on American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) Funding

NAPA, CA—Napa County invites interested individuals and community-based organizations to two workshops to discuss funding opportunities under Napa County’s Community Grant Program, which has been proposed to invest American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds in eligible projects. The two workshops will be held at the Napa County Library at 580 Coombs Street on October 12:

  • Workshop #1 (10am-12pm): Non-Profit & Community Based Organizations Programs aimed to address adverse health, family, workforce, and community impacts, focused on the communities most seriously affected
  • Workshop #2 (2pm-4pm) : Employment, Industry & Commerce Programs aimed to address changes in business and economic conditions related to the pandemic, including workforce characteristics and labor force participation

Community members are encouraged to attend to learn about the eligible uses of ARPA funds, discuss potential projects, and review the proposed application process under Napa County’s Community Grant Program.

Background:

On March 11, 2021, President Joseph Biden signed the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021 establishing the $350 billion Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. Napa County is expected to receive a direct allocation of $26,755,157 under ARPA’s Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (Fiscal Recovery Fund). Napa County received half of these funds in May 2021 and the remaining half of these funds are expected to be received around May 2022. Funds must be allocated by Dec. 31, 2024.

The intention of the Fiscal Recovery Funds is to build on and expand support for the COVID-19 public health emergency provided previously through the CARES Act. In addition to counties receiving funds from the American Rescue Plan, states, cities, tribes, and school districts have also been granted funds.

Eligible uses of Fiscal Recovery Funds include:

  • Response to public health emergency / negative economic impact
  • Equity-focused services
  • Replacement of lost public sector revenues
  • Water, sewer, and broadband infrastructure

Napa County is considering a Community Grant Program to invest American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds in eligible projects.
