Introduction

The U.S. Department of the Treasury has stated that the American Rescue Plan will provide needed relief to state, local, and Tribal governments to enable them to continue to support the public health response and lay the foundation for a strong and equitable economic recovery.  In addition to helping these governments address the revenue losses they have experienced as a result of the crisis, it will help them cover the costs incurred [while] responding to the public health emergency and provide support for a recovery — including through assistance to households, small businesses and nonprofits, and aid to impacted industries.

Purpose of the Funding Advisory Committee

A five member funding advisory committee was established to identify eligible programs and projects from a variety of stakeholders and then to make recommendations for full or partial funding to the Oceana County Board of Commissioners.

How to Request Funding for Eligible Programs and Projects

Under Development: The advisory committee is currently developing the process and procedures that will be used by organizations to submit funding requests.

A funding application form will be available on January 1, 2022 on this web site.  Please keep in mind that releasing the form is subject to issuance of Final Rules by the U.S. Department of the Treasury regarding eligible expenditures.

Organizations interested in submitting an application may want to use this time (August to December 2021) to begin building a case for why your application should be considered once the county begins accepting them.  This is a competitive application process.
