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:
- Respond to the public health emergency (COVID-19) or its negative economic impacts.
- 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.
- Make necessary investments in water, sewer, or broadband infrastructure.
- 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.
