How will Cleveland County’s ARPA be spent?

Cleveland County is meeting with a wide range of stakeholders throughout the county to identify areas of need based on the impact of COVID-19 in accordance with federal guidelines. 

Additionally, the county’s public survey, available online, allows for feedback from all Cleveland County residents. We want to hear from you! We have contracted with 929 Strategies to assist us through the process of checking requests for eligibility in accordance with federal guidelines and in distributing funds on an equitable basis. This survey allows us to collect data and organize individual ideas submitted by our residents, business owners, nonprofits and other service providers.
