American Rescue Plan Advisory Committee 


The United States Department of Treasury is providing Grand Traverse County with $18,081,253 in funding to address the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The County Administration has formed the American Rescue Plan act advisory Committee (ARPAAC) which consists of 15 members that will help determine the best ways for an influx of American Rescue Plan funds to be spent within the County. These committee members were selected based on a consultant company that identified 11 different sectors reflecting Grand Traverse County.
