Brunswick County is receiving almost $28 million in federal APRA funding.

A year after the coronavirus was officially declared a pandemic, the federal government enacted legislation to help stimulate the economy and recover from the financial cost of COVID-19.

The American Rescue Plan Act sent $350 billion to local and state governments from its nearly $2 trillion total package. Brunswick County received nearly $28 million of those funds, and has already allocated more than $4 million.

The funds can be used on supporting the public health response to the pandemic, address its economic impacts, replace lost government revenue, and invest in infrastructure. 

The county approved a breakdown of the potential projects to be funded, but each individual project will come before the board again for approval with further details.
