American Rescue Plan

Dauphin County has launched this webpage to keep the public informed about the county’s American Rescue Plan Act allocation through the ARP State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund (SLFRF). As part of the American Rescue Plan, Dauphin County has been allocated $54 million to invest in the county’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is our goal to use this website as a portal for important ARP information and transparent reporting on the use of ARP-SLFRF funds.

Our goal is to provide up-to-date information about the SLFRF program and how funds will be distributed in Dauphin County to promote a strong and equitable recovery. At this stage, we are awaiting final guidance from US Department of Treasury in the form of the Treasury Final Rule. This Final Rule provides definitive guidance from the federal government on both eligible uses and programmatic requirements tied to use of SLFRF funds. Review of the Treasury Final Rule is necessary prior to making final ARP-SLFRF spending decisions and opening related programs.

Also for your review is the Dauphin County 2021 Recovery Plan Performance Report.

This plan outlines the broad framework in which Dauphin County is developing its SLFRF spending plan while awaiting the Treasury Final Rule.

Please check back frequently for updates including information on planned expenditures, financial reporting, and opportunities to provide feedback on planned uses of ARP-SLFRF funds.
