County Council to Review ARPA Grant Applications in Scheduled Meeting

April 18, 2022

Laurens County Council will meet on Tuesday, April 19th for the purpose of reviewing the ARPA application grants.

As reported by the Buzz last week, the county will receive $13.1 million in ARP funds, of which up to $2.5 million will be available to nonprofits and another $2.5 million for infrastructure projects (water, sewer and broadband) from the county’s first appropriation of ARP funding.

Applications were due by 5:00 pm on April 1st.  The county received five infrastructure grant applications and thirty-four community applications.

County Council members received the full applications last week to review prior to the meeting.  Representatives from submitting organizations have been invited to attend the meeting and provide any additional information as might be requested by council members.

“I am looking forward to hearing from all of the applicants. We have some really good proposals and Council has some hard decisions to make,” said County Council Chairman Brown Patterson. “We are committed to taking our time and working with everyone to do the most good possible in our community”
