In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its negative impacts, the U.S. Department of Treasury is issuing the Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds established under the American Rescue Plan Act. ARPA funds have been issued to provide a substantial infusion of resources to help turn the tide of the pandemic, address its economic fallout, and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable recovery.
The Carson City Board of Supervisors has allocated $1,300,000 to non-profits or governmental entities operating in Carson City to help meet the requirements of the Grant and needs of the Community.
The funds were approved to be awarded for the following categories:
1. Mental health treatment;
2. Substance abuse treatment;
3. Crisis intervention and other behavioral health services;
4. Services or outreach to promote access to health and social services;
5. Affordable housing / rent subsidies / homelessness;
6. Employment or job training services to address negative economic or public health impacts experienced due to a worker’s occupation or level of training.
