Washoe County Recovery Plan 

Annual Recovery Plan Performance Reports provide a high-level overview of the jurisdiction’s intended and actual uses of funding including, but not limited to: the jurisdiction’s plan for use of funds to promote a response to the pandemic and economic recovery, key outcome goals, progress to date on those outcomes, and any noteworthy challenges or opportunities identified during the reporting period. These reports are due annually in July. 

In August of 2021, Washoe County submitted it's first Recovery Plan to outline intended uses for ARPA-SLFRF funds. The report gives an overview of the county's demographics, use of funds, and community engagement strategies. When the County submitted the August 2021 plan, there were three projects identified for ARPA-SLFRF funding. Since the plan was submitted, the County has taken considerable steps to develop evaluation techniques and strategic investments of these once in a lifetime funds.

April 26, 2022 BCC Meeting Update

On April 26 , 2022 Commissioners discuss Community Reinvestment Program in the form of community grants: Community Reinvestment Manager Gabrielle Enfield presented the newly created Community Reinvestment Program, which is designed to build a resilient Washoe County by connecting federal, state and local grant funds to areas of need.

Washoe County received $91.5 million in ARPA-SLFRF grants, $46.7 million of which has been awarded so far to 25 internal projects and two nonprofit awards. The second tranche of funding is anticipated around May 19, 2022. The majority of projects are started, and most are focused on “negative economic impacts,” i.e. homeless services and capital improvement projects, and services for youth and social services.

The Community Grant Program is a $4 million program made up of small grants up to $50,000 and standard grants up to $1 million. Staff will conduct community outreach about the program in the month of May, with the application period opening in June, and funding awarded in October.

“I think there may be opportunities when you have departmental meetings to chat with folks to see what are nonprofits doing in the community that would assist your work in the County,” Commissioner Alexis Hill said. “I think there’s a real opportunity to find a great nexus and do that transformational programming.”
