American Rescue Plan Act

Coronavirus State & Local Fiscal Recovery Fund

Cameron County has been awarded $82,194,453 from the American Rescue Plant Act’s (ARPA) Coronavirus State & Local Fiscal Recovery Funds (SLFRF). The County intents to use the funds to help support a strong and equitable recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn.  This is being accomplished by funding the four major allowable uses:

  1. Respond to the public health emergency (COVID-19) or its negative economic impacts.
  2. Provision of government services to the extent of the reduction in revenue due to the COVID-19 public health emergency relative to revenues collected in the most recent full fiscal year prior to the emergency.
  3. Make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure.
  4. Respond to workers performing essential work during the COVID-19 public health emergency by providing premium pay to eligible workers.

This program is being implemented by the County’s Administration Department headed by:

Pete Sepulveda, County Administrator
Xavier Villarreal, Deputy County Administrator
Anthony Lopez, Assistant County Administrator
Victor G. Trevino, Fiscal Analyst Supervisor, is responsible for program compliance on a daily basis.
