COVID-19 American Rescue Plan Act Funds

For more than a year, Maricopa County has been a trustworthy steward of federal COVID-19 recovery funds, allocating millions of dollars to keep people in their homes, to connect people to jobs, to keep small businesses running, and to track and mitigate the spread of the virus.  Many of the efforts that began in 2020 through the CARES Act, grants, and other funding sources continue today.

Now, a new influx of federal funds made available to the County through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) is being used to support and expand our recovery. County leadership's goal is to distribute these funds in an equitable way across our community, with a focus on areas disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
