American Rescue Plan



On March 11, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) into law, which includes direct aid to Kentucky counties. Kentucky counties will receive a direct allocation of approximately $867.8 million. This page includes resources for Kentucky counties about ARPA and will be updated regularly as more information and guidance is made available.
