11 projects funded, Lebanon County seeks to spend remaining ARPA dollars

April 11, 2024

James Mentzer

"Lebanon County has spent over $25 million of the nearly $26.1 million received through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) of 2021. To date, the federal funding has been allocated to 11 projects with others still to be decided – possibly as soon as the next meeting of the Lebanon County Commissioners on April 18, according to chairman Bob Phillips. Under the law, counties have until the end of 2024 for their funds to be allocated and 2026 for the money to be used...The federal government passed ARPA in March 2021, during the height of the pandemic. By July, Wolgemuth said the county knew its share ($26.07 million) of the $1.9 trillion the feds placed into the program. “The first disbursement was in August of 2021 and it went to WEPA,” added Wolgemuth, who has kept meticulous records since the government requires quarterly reporting through the end of the program (James Mentzer reporting for Lebtown)."
