American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA)

The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) allocated $6.15 billion to Pennsylvania counties, metropolitan cities, and local government units to support COVID-19 response efforts, replace lost revenue, support economic stabilization for households and businesses, and address systemic public health and economic challenges.

The COVID-19 ARPA Local Fiscal Recovery Fund provides eligible state, local, and territorial governments with a substantial infusion of resources to meet pandemic response needs.

Our Role
The Northwest Commission assists local governments in leveraging these funds with other grant opportunities for maximum impact and identifying eligible projects.
