Door County being strategic with its use of ARPA funds

Some of your favorite non-profit organizations could benefit from some of the federal funding Door County received from the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021. Last month, the Door County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to make approximately $200,000 available to local organizations providing services to “expand and enhance behavioral health and a broad range of related programs and services” in the area. It is just the latest plan from the county to use the over $5.3 million it received from the American Rescue Plan Act passed in March 2021. Door County Administrator Ken Pabich says they have tried to be strategic with their ARPA funds to address major and immediate needs in the area, including housing and broadband internet.

ARPA funds must be spent by municipalities by 2024. Grant funding requests for organizations addressing needs like child care, job training, alcohol and drug abuse, and behavioral health need to be filed by the individual organizations by October 28th, 2022.
