As many of you know, Buncombe County is slated to receive about $50 million in federal COVID Recovery Funding to directly address COVID response efforts and peripheral economic fallout from the pandemic. This recovery funding for local governments is just one part of an overall package of aid to local communities supported by the American Rescue Plan Act.
For those of you not familiar with the COVID Recovery Funding, this page is your one-stop resource to learn about what projects are available for funding, how to submit an application for your project, important deadlines, and other up-to-date news.
After discovering Buncombe County would receive this money, we sent a community survey to gather community input on ways we can best utilize it. We are excited to have received more than 7,000 responses, which you can also view on this website.
