    ARPA Impact Report: An Analysis of How Counties are Addressing National Issues With Local Investments

    America’s nearly 40,000 county elected officials and 3.6 million county employees are on the frontlines of the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic. As the country emerges from the pandemic and grapples with the toll it has taken on our citizens, counties are responding and rebuilding. At the same time, many counties are still confronting significant workforce shortage pressures at a time with growing, critical resident needs.

    With American Rescue Plan funds, counties are strengthening America’s workforce, addressing the nation’s behavioral health crisis, expanding broadband access, improving housing affordability and building prosperous communities for the next generation.
