“We know the pandemic has taken a toll on so many residents, businesses and community based organizations and we need to better understand your experiences, difficulties and successes,” said County Executive Day. “This federal funding is intended to help all of us fully recover but we need your help to ensure it is spent as effectively as possible.”
“We have struggled through one of the most challenging chapters in our nation’s history and the American Rescue Plan will provide relief that is desperately needed by residents, businesses and community organizations,” Legislator Wolfe said. “These surveys take just minutes to complete but they will provide the information necessary to understand and respond to your needs and priorities. You are partners in this recovery endeavor, and we will be listening to what you say.”
The American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 was passed by Congress and signed into law on March 11, 2021. This $1.9 trillion economic relief package delivers on the commitment to protecting the American people from the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19.
