ARPA Economic Development Grants
Cobb County received approximately $147 million from the federal government's American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). The U.S. Congress passed the American Rescue Plan Act in March 2021. It set aside funding for local and state governments to support public health, essential workers, and infrastructure measures and to lessen the negative economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cobb County economic development partners received $22 Million in funds to support workforce programs, small and minority business programs, and child care. Below is a list of disbursements of these economic development ARPA funds.
