In order to facilitate transparency to the public, County staff has prepared this status report on the ARRA funds that Contra Costa County is either expecting to receive through formula grants or is applying for through competitive grants. Staff of the County Administrator's Office and the Auditor-Controller are collaborating to ensure that all reporting requirements of the ARRA are met and all relevant information is captured.
The Contra Costa Board of Supervisors has requested that the status report identify the impact of all ARRA funds in terms of job creation, economic impact, social impact, and cost avoidance. The chart identifying the County's participation in ARRA funding opportunities is included as a link below. It is being continuously updated as information from Departments is provided. Staff will return to the Board of Supervisors on a quarterly basis with updates on Contra Costa County's experience with ARRA funding.
